Linda’s Story

Linda’s Story

Ten-month-old Linda came to her foster parents, Luke and Amanda, as an “emergency placement” from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Luke and Amanda were shocked when they met Linda for the first time. Linda was de-toxing from drugs in her system and was suffering from a series of medical problems, including yellowing eyes and a serious case of diaper rash. Linda is recovering quickly under the watchful eyes of Luke and Amanda, who love her very much; and Luke and Amanda are grateful to the Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services’ foster care team who they say provided excellent advice and emotional support.
