Meet Some of Our Families

Heidi (Zachary and Nathan)

"To me, a family sticks together, loves and supports each other, and does stuff together."

"We're close, can talk to each other without getting uncomfortable, and we trust each other."

"Being a parent is an emotional thing; it's unconditional love with my children and watching them grow up."

Quineca (Diamond)

"A family is a group of people that cherish other's feelings and thoughts."

"Our big family strength is staying together even when times get bad."

"My greatest accomplishment as a parent is learning new things and new ways to interact with my Diamond."

Margaret (Kendra)

"My favorite family memory from a holiday is Kendra's first Christmas because it was when she started walking."

"I like being a parent because I can see Kendra grow up, read to her, and teach her words, letters, and numbers."

"A family means being able to talk to each other, play jokes, and have fun with each other."
