Mother and Volunteer in Massillon, Ohio
My name is Darla. I am married with 4 biological children ages ranging from 8-15. My husband is my best friend. We knew after the birth of our fourth child we wanted to be a vessel for God. Waiting until our youngest was 5 we started the journey. It has brought things never expected into and out of our lives. The house holds 10 animals ranging from dogs, cats, birds, a gecko, a fish and a frog. Each person is responsible for their own pet including the foster children. I truly believe it gives them compassion and responsibility to take care of another living thing. Having foster kids has taught us amazing things about ourselves. We feel as though they give us way more then we give to them. Our home is noisy and very busy and we all love it that way.
