My Thoughts On Being A Foster Parent

Siblings holding hands

DCCH Foster Mom Katy Sullivan shares thoughts about her role, and we just had to share.

For those of you who don’t know me, we have seven children and two foster daughters ages six and seven.

In my previous life before marriage and children, I was a social worker for the state and worked with children in out of home care, their birth parents, and sometimes, foster parents. During this time, I was blessed to work with some amazing foster parents, like Susan. She had an incredible gift to love every child placed with her family as if they were the only child in the entire world. I learned firsthand how you can love a child, regardless of how God brings them to you!
