The Johnson Family: Then and Now

Perfection

A poem by Barry Johnson (Foster/Adoptive Parent)

When I saw her eyes I fell in love
Makes you believe in a God above
Cause her eyes held all her pain
Shrouded with guilt and all of her shame

But her smile held all her hope
That somehow allowed her to cope
With years spent in that waiting place
And brought laughter to her beautiful face

Custom-made cakes for children

Lakeside Presbyterian Church has found a way to make birthdays for DCCH youth in foster homes a little more sweet.

Each month for the past year, a dedicated group of women and men have created customized cakes for a child’s birthday. They also provide party supplies and an individualized gift. The cakes have brought much joy and gave cause for many smiles!

Thank you, Lakeside Presbyterian, for making a positive difference in the lives of children and foster families!

St.Joseph and Jesus

Please join us in prayer of the St. Joseph Novena – To those on the path of adoption invoking the intercession of St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, we pray that the Lord will bless all who travel upon the path of adoption but especially for the Children at DCCH waiting for a family.

Girl Scouts earn Silver Award

A local NKY Girl Scouts troop has been partnering with DCCH's Foster Care Program while earning their prestigious Silver Award.

The girls were in the thick of planning when COVID hit. Like good troopers, they did not give up but re-strategized their project. The final portion is wrapping up with a unique message highlighting the need for more foster and adoptive parents. The girls designed four different bookmarks, each with a foster care message and printed 1,000 copies. With the help of other NKY Girl Scout troops, the bookmarks will be distributed across our region by including them in local cookie deliveries.

Watch the story on Fox 19.

Troop 2173 really exemplifies the Scouting spirit, and DCCH is so grateful for their partnership! We encourage everyone to return the gift by purchasing a box (or two) of cookies!
