Family Description

We have a large, loving, and diverse family. Our adult children, our extended family, birth families and our community welcome each and every child into our family as an individual, a treasure. We have 30+ years of experience in caring for special needs children through foster care and adoption. Although we are older, we find we have more time and resources available to help whatever children we add to our family reach their fullest potential. We love to travel, celebrate, hug, and laugh. We are excitedly looking for a child or small sibling group to complete our wonderful family!

Preference Description

We're looking for a teenage girl who wants a supportive family to go to college or technical school, learn to drive, and is safe with younger children.
