A desire to have a child of their own led this family to begin the fostering journey nearly 15 years ago in Florida. They were able to adopt their first foster placement. Now, this family of three has continued to be a haven for children needing long term placements. Sharon works at a local middle school and her husband works for a large company.
Together they enjoy camping, heading to the mountains and going to the beach- perfect for where they live since all are fairly close by!
Fun loving and determined to enjoy life, they have chosen to follow the path they feel God has had them on by fostering through Miracle Hill. While not always easy, Sharon says “ I just had to get in my head that what God called me to do was get these babies ready for their forever homes.” Like many other foster parents, she echoes the difficulty of seeing them leave, but holds fast to the joy of seeing the difference in them from when they come into care and when their forever family day comes. In all of it she says she holds fast to the verse “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.”
