Amy is a single foster mom who was referred to Austin Angels by her foster placement agency, DePelchin. She opened her home to children in January 2017 and had her first permanent placement in October of 2017. She has taken two placements since then: a five-year-old boy and a nine-year-old boy.
Amy had the heart to foster, the space to do so, and felt there was no better time in life to take fostering on.
“I have always had a passion for children. I know it’s cheesy, but as Whitney Houston sang, ‘I believe children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way’. When you help a child, you affect the world. Though I was never able to have kids, I felt like it was the right time to explore fostering, given the dire need in Travis County.”
