Gary and Sabina of San Antonio were blessed with three biological children. Their hearts led them to partner with Upbring foster-to-adopt to add two more to their family. If their story ended there, it would still be worth telling.
But the day they held a 3-month-old with two broken ribs and a broken leg, they knew they had to do more.
The couple has welcomed 15 children into their home as San Antonio foster parents. Though the children are only part of their family temporarily, Gary and Sabina love them like their own, and it hurts when they leave.
Sabina takes comfort in knowing that she and Gary held each child, laughed with them, encouraged them and showed them how parents should treat their children. It is a legacy of love the couple prays their children will pass down to their own one day.
Want to open your home and your heart to child?
Every child has talents, dreams and incredible potential. But thousands of abused and neglected children in Texas need a champion to help them learn and grow — someone to encourage their dreams and prepare them for life’s many successes.
Upbring works with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to connect children with safe, loving homes. You can help by becoming a foster parent.
Tee it up fore children!
Because of your generosity, our foster families can provide their children with clothes, school supplies, three hot meals a day and an endless supply of love. If you want to stand with them and the children in their care, register for the Upbring Golf San Antonio fundraiser on October 23, 2017.
