LATEST NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Congratulations to this amazing family on their adoption! After two and a half years of fostering, with weekly visitations and intense efforts toward a plan of birth family reunification, unfortunately that plan was not reached. However, the next best option is when a foster family can and does commit to making their home a forever home. They officially added three beautiful and smart siblings into their family through adoption. The family just made their daughter an official permanent big sister too! They plan to celebrate their adoption by taking a road trip to visit Yellowstone National Park, when it is safe to do so. We are happy for you all and congratulate everyone on a foster care job well done; with a happy ending that is really just a new beginning!
Congratulations and thanks to outgoing DCCH Board of Directors President Linda Rawe, who recently completed her six-year term on the Board. Her leadership by example has been a true blessing to all of us at DCCH.
Her role as President is only the tip of the iceberg of her service and involvement. Linda has logged countless hours participating in multiple committees, fundraising, directly volunteering with our kids, and actively supporting our staff. She has done so with humility, genuine concern, and a welcoming smile. We are grateful for Linda's service and dedication.
Donnie and Hanna McGuire loved that their children and their two friends decided to set up a treat stand in their front yard, to benefit the children living at DCCH. In less than three hours, they made $250, exceeding their expectations! The kids were so proud to deliver their donation to Ron Bertsch, DCCH's Director of Foster Care and Adoption.
On behalf of all the children at DCCH, we want to thank the McGuire family and friends, as well as their community for their kindness and generosity!
