Introducing the Kirby Family . . .

Tim and Sue Kirby are being highlighted this week for their exemplary service as foster parents since 2017. One child placed in their home was reunified with his mother in December 2017. From the beginning of the child’s placement with the Kirby’s, they maintained an open relationship with his mother, and continute to provide her with support and guidance. After reunification, the Kirby’s drove several miles across county lines to take the child and his mother grocery shopping so they could show her the food items the child likes. They were invited to the child's birthday celebration and were happy to attend. They continue to provide support and mentorship to the biological mother, call to check in, and visit with them every few weeks. They exemplify the values we are most proud of within our foster care family. Thank you Tim and Sue ♥
