“I was literally blindsided when we started doing foster care. We live in our little bubbles. I had no idea how bad the drug problems are in our city, but what makes my job easy is we belong to an incredible organization, Sierra Child and Family Services. They’ve got my back, and they are right there ready to step in and help me in any way they can.
[Our foster son] was so afraid of males, any time my husband would come in the room he would just cower. It took a long time, but it finally came to the point that he’d go sit next to my husband and lean his arm on his leg. He got healing in our home through our love and our consistency — in living in our stable environment where he didn’t have to live in fear. That’s my reward.”
