The Woodward Family

Kelli Woodard is a single foster mom to four boys who came to the United States through the Unaccompanied Refugee Minor Program. While she is teaching them about life in America, she believes strongly in keeping their own cultural traditions intact and actively engages the boys in local community connections that build those bonds. Her house is full of the music, food, clothing and language of her foster sons’ homelands.
