The foster care system is a process, children can be in care for 3 days or 3 years. Unfortunately, the latter is often the reality and the average youth in foster care experiences at least 3 different placements in one calendar year. Consistency and a stable environment are critical for children and we have been blessed to know many families who offer that safe place for foster children.

The Hoebel family in Kissimmee, FL has a home full of love and laughter. Over the past 12 years Scott and Jennifer have had dozens of foster youth in their home. This Christmas season they have 6 beautiful children and we are honored to be able to share their wish lists. Help us spread Christmas magic and joy to these sweet and smiley faces.
