The Ozbun Family
In 2002, my husband and I had some friends that did foster care. We thought they were “crazy” until they invited us to go on a camping trip with them and their foster children. We were able to see firsthand what an impact they had on the kids’ lives. In 2004, we started our own journey in fostering. At that time, we had no plans on adopting. We already had 5 children; my husband had 2 from a previous marriage and we had 3 together. We got a call to take in an emergency placement for a 13 year old boy until a long term foster home could be found for him. He wanted a forever family so badly. He really just fit in well with our family and it wasn’t long before we fell in love with him. We decided to make if official and the adoption went through when he was 15 years old.
