Debra grew up in Falls Church, Virginia and moved to Texas in 1988. Rick and Debra have been together 40 years this June 2021. They have 5 children together and 18 grandchildren. 2018 would change our lives forever when we were granted PMC of our granddaughter, we became kinship foster parents and I have two grandsons who I'm raising with my son he wants them to have stability, so I have the 2 of them and my granddaughter now we are a household of 5. But my son is always there to help with the kids in anyway needed.
Debra's family was referred to Austin Angels about a year ago because of the emotional, physical, and financial toll. We went from empty nesters to 5, it was hard at first but now that there is structure, and they know what is required of them our house run smoothly. I wouldn't change it for anything! We have an amazing case worker who matched us with a family last year and it's been amazing. Even though she had to take a step back for a bit we remain friends and still get together. They are not just a family match with ours they are part of our family. We have been blessed with Love Boxes the kids love them it makes them feel important. Debra hopes to bring her knowledge to the Austin Angels Council, as well as help in areas that are needed for herself and other families as well.
