Welcome Karen

We are delighted to welcome Karen Broadhurst to the team. Karen brings experience from her own childhood as a birth child in a foster family and as a foster parent herself. We are excited to hear more from her!

Hello everyone! I am Karen and I’ve had a passion for foster and adoption ever since I was a little girl.  It was instilled in me by my parents who began opening their home and family to this wonderful world when I was only eight years old. I just knew that it would be something I’d be called to do one day!

My husband Preston and I began our journey into foster adopt just six months after our wedding and by our first-year anniversary we had a sibling group. It seemed as though we were in a whirlwind as we were venturing with both of us in fulltime employment, fulltime college students, ministry, and foster adoption.  Life surely was and is an adventure. We were a family of six just a year and a half into our marriage. And oh what a blast we’ve had over the last 20 years. Our family has grown in ways I could never have imagined. Lots and lots of tears, anxiety, frustration, joy, happiness, and lots of perfectly perfect chaos! We’ve been in the depths of the valleys and the tips of the mountain tops throughout our experience. If you are just thinking about expanding your family through the foster adoption network, have been on board for a short time, or are a certified veteran of it; I can’t wait for you to get to know me, my crazy wild crew, and some of our life’s treasured moments as a family.
