Michael and Cathy have been licensed foster parents with Camelot for about 4 years. They have always had their hearts open to taking in children with special needs and babies. They are huge advocates for the younger population as they want to provide them the care they require for all of their medical, dental, and social needs. Most of the babies that they have taken have significant medical issues and the family is always willing to travel for them to such places as Miami or Tampa to get them the specialized treatments they need to help them thrive. This family is truly unique as they have adopted and provided a permanent home for some of the children and young adults they have cared for. They also continue to foster and provide for the needs of foster children whom they love. They are devoted resource parents and when it comes down to it there is nothing they wouldn’t do for the children they care for. We are so grateful to have Michael and Cathy as a part of our team.
