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!

November is recognized as National Adoption Month. For one northern Kentucky family, this year is a cause for celebration. The Shepherd family is one step closer to finalizing adoption of the young girl they have been fostering the past five years.
November is a perfect time of year to offer thanksgivings for the parents who made lifelong commitments to the 7 million people in America who have been adopted. Nearly 60% came from the foster care system where abuse and neglect likely scarred their childhood. Each year about 135,000 children celebrate being adopted!
Students of Mount Notre Dame created beautiful paintings for the children and families in our foster care program. We love the inspirational quotes and colorful artwork!
There are many different ways to support and bring positivity to our foster families and children in foster care. Learn more about becoming a foster parent with DCCH.
