Amanda and Scott Nix currently have six boys ages 12 to 17 living in their home in Milliken. They welcome youth in foster care into their family and parent them alongside their two biological sons, who still live at home. “We don’t think of ourselves as a foster family, we are just a family,” said Amanda. The family enjoys fishing, camping, bowling and attending church together. They enjoy giving back to the local community and making birthday celebrations special for all of the youth in their home.
