Bradley Mattes   |   November 17, 2020

Here’s a heartwarming story for our week of programming on foster care and adoption.  Doris Poole enjoyed a career as a nurse but felt something was missing, so she began to foster what would become sixty children over four decades, while raising six of her own.  Doris – known to the kids as Grandma – is now 84 and a reunion of sorts was held in her honor.  Under her roof, kids learned to deal with serious issues like anger and forgiveness.  Another acquired the ability express herself verbally and became a high school advisor.  Every month Doris also set aside money for each child for education or funds to set out on their own.  Considering foster care or adoption?  Visit lifeissues.org and click on the top banner for free resources.
