Love opens a door
George and Beth have been hosting children with Safe Families since 2008. Their journey began when they decided to become foster parents to do respite care for other families.
After receiving their license, and waiting for the phone to ring, DCFS suggested they contact Safe Families. Within a couple of days, Beth and George welcomed their first placement.
Today, they are hosting their 29th child, a six month old boy named Vernon who came to the Drosts when he was only a few days old.
Beth keeps a scrapbook of all the little ones they have hosted over the years. "Each placement has been a real learning and growing experience."
Beth and George love nurturing each child entrusted in their care the same way their grandkids are loved on.
At 29 kids and counting, Beth had this to say,
"Just because you're a senior doesn't mean you sit around on a rocking chair. You have so much wisdom and experience - share it!"
