I have a new friend since we began fostering. I played mom to her son for one year, two months, and four days. Some might say this was because she did something wrong or that it was so that something good could come of it, while others might say it was because she was treated wrongly by a broken system. When you get close to foster care, you begin to notice things: racism, poverty, and social injustice just to name a few.

Anna was born in the Oklahoma County Jail on January 1st, 2007. She was ten weeks premature and pronounced clinically dead by medics. Anna miraculously regained her heartbeat and lived on a ventilator at Childrens Hospital for the next several weeks. Anna was diagnosed with double pneumonia and failure to thrive. Doctors were skeptical that she would make it through the first night. Anna survived not just one night but 70 nights at Childrens Hospital without visits from anyone other than her DHS worker.

Annas House and our AHF families benefit in many ways through volunteers. Not all are called to be a foster parent, but we are all called to do something. Volunteers of various ages and backgrounds may join us through weekly, monthly, or one-time opportunities, and groups may partner with us through projects and events. Learn how you can help.

The process itself is really easy. It gets complicated when trying to gather all the necessary paperwork and getting schedules in sync for the interview/home inspection. Anna’s House has been amazing in helping to get the paperwork completed and any additional care the child may need, and honestly just being an encourager.
