Foster Care

My wife and I were foster parents from 2007 to 2014.  During that time we cared for nearly 50 infants and toddlers in the child welfare system.  If you are looking for a way to make a difference in your community, I can think of no higher calling than to care for children.  It is a life changing experience for them and for you.  For more information on becoming a foster parent in the Tampa Bay area, go to:


In addition, we have been active in The Pinellas Foster and Adoptive Parent Association for many years.  It is a 501(c)(3) organization that helps foster and adoptive children and families in our community.  My wife is the President of the association and she works tirelessly on behalf of our members.  To be find out more or to donate, please visit:


My wife and I were fortunate to be able to adopt two of our children from the foster care system.  Our lives could not be the same without them, and we are truly blessed to be their parents.  For more information on adopting through the foster care system in the Tampa Bay area, go to:
