This family is full of energy and spunk! Curious and completely at home in the open air of the country, Billy and Devon share their home with four sweet kiddos ages 12, 9, 4 and 7 months. Billie is a homeschooling mom and cosmetologist and Devon is a robotics technician. Their love for children led them to fostering along with their desire to make an impact on the life of another child as well as to live out their faith which they are very committed to. They have been licensed through Connie Maxwell for 9 months and have had one placement.
They are currently fostering only infants at this time. Like many foster parents the fear of falling in love with a child and then having to say goodbye was their greatest hesitation. Also like many foster parents, once the child was in their home, they realized all those fears pale in comparison to the feeling of being able to provide a safe, loving environment for a child.
On any given day, you will find these guys rushing between sports practices and games, their church that they are very involved in or the boys favorite, hunting and fishing. They are proof that no one is ever too busy to love if you are willing to be flexible and tweak the routine a bit. When asked what advice they would give, Billie said “Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you are supposed to do.” We second that and we’re so glad you obeyed that still small voice. Best wishes as you are beginning this new journey!
