As a foster parent, Cindy has compassionately and tirelessly supported numerous children on their journey toward finding a permanent and loving family they can call their own.

Cindy has gone above and beyond in her role as a foster parent, helping children heal from trauma, maintaining sibling connections, and holding compassion for biological families. Her dedication to the well-being of children and families in need has been truly inspiring, and her impact on the community has been profound. She has also served as a mentor to many and is a shining example of compassion and dedication in the field of foster care and adoption, setting a wonderful example of how foster care should be approached and supporting all individuals involved in the child's well-being.
