Darci was told at age 19 that she had endometriosis and if she wanted children she would have to act fast. She faced fertility issues and decided to foster early on because they weren’t sure about adoption yet. The first time they met their first potential foster daughter, her husband fell in love instantly and they ended up adopting her when the option became available! In the midst of the adoption and fostering process she discovered she was pregnant! Shortly thereafter she found out she was pregnant AGAIN so within a few years she and her husband went from 0 to 3 children! They took a few breaks from fostering but as time passed they decided to foster more, and today have 4 children who are official members of their family as well as one more foster daughter- a beautiful girl who smiled at me throughout the whole interview on Darci’s lap!
You’ll have to hear the whole interview to catch all the amazing details on how they have grown their family and how her heart has changed as a foster mother. She has seen inside a world with so much need that she yearns to give a home to all the babies, and after our conversation I gave some long hard thought to someday fostering myself. She is a special amazing person and I just fell in love with her the more she spoke. Her heart is so pure and while it feels like a burden at times to have grown her family this way, to be in the very crazy world of foster parenting, I admire her 100 % and hope she inspires all of you as well!
