First Adoption of 2023

Little girl with her adoptive family

Ten-year-old Taylin celebrated in style today for her adoption finalization hearing in Boone County Family Court.

She wore an elegant white dress and arrived in a purple stretch limousine with her parents, Jimmy and Lauren, two baby siblings, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. DCCH case managers, both current and past, Brittany Powell, Sarah McAdams, Danielle Thamm, and TFC Director Ron Bertsch, were all on hand to witness the big occasion.

If you would like to see more pictures of the special day, check out Taylin's Adoption Story over on YouTube!

Congratulations, to Taylin and her forever family!

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

The Anderson Family

A beautiful story of a neighbor helping a neighbor.

Kelli and David Anderson have a Pendleton County farm. Their family befriended long-time neighbor and DCCH foster mom Monica Meyer, along with her children. During the COVID crisis, their kids played together, and the two families shared in support of one another. After Monica's unexpected death in the fall of 2021, the Andersons quickly stepped up.

They welcomed the children into their home; through adoption, Ayden and Ashton are official members of the Anderson family. DCCH congratulates and thanks Kelli, David, Preston, Brynndon, and Isabelle for giving these brothers a forever home!

If you would like to learn more about how you can help children in foster care, we would love to hear from you!

Local Orthodontist Gives A Christmas Blessing

Orthodontist checking braces on girl's teeth

A story from one of our Case Managers

"We have been going back and forth with multiple orthodontists to try and figure out a way for one of our residents to keep their braces and continue caring for them. We were not having any luck with a provider accepting their needs due to the original provider who put the braces on receiving the total amount paid for services. It was suggested that the child get the braces removed and start the whole process over again in a year.
