Fostering children with medical needs

A foster dad reads to a young girl

When most of their friends were empty nesters, Dan and Katy became foster parents for two medically fragile siblings. After raising four children, they had the wisdom of parenting experience and the time to devote to weekly appointments, therapies, and attentive at-home care.

Dan and Katy acknowledge that parenting again requires a different energy than they had in their 30s, but they believe meeting this need for these children and their family is a calling, and they’re grateful to God for supplying the strength they need and to their grown kids for their help and encouragement.

Fostering medically fragile children takes extra time, effort, care, but Bethany provides training and support so foster parents like Dan and Katy can provide a safe place for children to heal and thrive.
