Foster Care Examples

Chris and Emily Norton have been married a year, are in their late twenties, and have already fostered 17 children.  Their Christian faith motivates them to be a blessing to others.  In the process, God is heaping great rewards on them.  The couple has adopted five foster daughters ranging in age from twenty to three.  Whittley was adopted as an adult and the other four are biological siblings.  Chris was paralyzed after a football injury seven years ago, so he struggles at times with being a dad with physical limitations.  But both Chris and Emily trust God will provide all they need to be good parents.  If God has been tugging at your heart to consider foster care, I pray the Norton family will give you the encouragement you need.
