THE BENSON FAMILY

Fostering is a calling for me. I feel very fulfilled to be a blessing to the children that are placed in our home. They give us joy and we give them love. We accept the kids as they are when they come into our home and we watch them change and develop into children who are proud of the way they look, proud of where they are, and proud of who they are becoming.

I have learned perseverance, patience and forgiveness. Some of the older children come severely bruised emotionally, and therefore my husband and I take nurturing these children very seriously.

We enjoy working with NCFST. The support and training is unbelievable. We have embraced a new culture as the children we care for are all from Native backgrounds. We are working together as a whole to create unity: the agency, the children, the home.
