Foster Care: Margie and Rob

Thirteen years ago, Margie and Rob Williams adopted three siblings who were on the Colorado Heart Gallery, a traveling display and online photo gallery at that includes portraits and videos of children and teens waiting to be adopted. Once their children were grown and out of the house, the Williams decided to become recertified as foster parents. They have chosen primarily to care for siblings, because they know how important it is to keep siblings together when they are in foster care. Margie and Rob emphasize family, and you can see that in the family photos that cover the walls in their Centennial home. For them, the children in foster care who have lived with them are part of their family forever. The couple credit their support network, strong faith and strong marriage to their success as foster parents.
