A Full House and Full Hearts

The Rice household in Cottonwood, Ariz. is filled to the brim with love. With three biological children, four foster children and one adopted child, Natalie and Corby’s love for foster care and adoption brings a sense of harmony to their home.

When Rebecca adopted Miles, she gained not only a son, but a new sister too. Foster care and adoption can create unbreakable bonds that spread joy and bring families together.

Oftentimes, our desire in life is centered around finding our own unique calling within this world. Sylvia, a foster parent in Northern Arizona, was given hers in a dream when she was only 13 years old. With Catholic Charities, Sylvia and her husband worked with the foster team to become a licensed foster family, certified in children who are medically fragile.

For therapeutic foster children, who struggle with mental, emotional, and behavioral difficulties, participating in enriching childhood activities like summer camp can be a challenge. That’s why Catholic Charities and its partner MATFORCE, an organization aimed at reducing substance abuse, worked to bring the summer camp experience to therapeutic foster children in Prescott and Yavapai County.

A Lifeline for Foster Care Families

Behind every successful foster parent is a licensing worker who supports their journey with training, resources, and sometimes, a shoulder to cry on. For foster families in Navajo County, Donna is this person, but she’s also much more.

“I was sitting at church one day and one of the speakers was talking about how he wouldn’t have been the person he was if he didn’t have a good foster home. It really hit me and resonated.”
