The Taylor Family

Boone County couple Maggie and Ian Taylor, adopted their daughter from DCCH’s Foster Care and Adoption Program in 2015. The Taylors were interested in adopting from foster care to help a child find a family and experience unconditional love.

Ian and Maggie say, “The best thing about adoption is watching a child grow up knowing the security and love they have found in a family they can trust.”

Adoption allowed the Taylors to see the great need for loving, safe homes for many children in their very own community. Ian and Maggie encourage those considering adoption from foster care, or even fostering in general, to realize the true blessing of adoption.

Maggie says, “It’s not just a blessing to the child – it opens your eyes to show you what true giving and love means. When you can open your heart and see what a selfless thing it is, it makes you feel like you have put a huge smile on that child’s heart too.”
