Spotlight on The Thorpe Foster Family

Elizabeth, known as Libby, and Kenneth, called Kenny, have dedicated 25 years to fostering children with great success. Their journey began at their church where they first met. Libby’s involvement with the nursery sparked their interest in helping others. Their initial support for a struggling couple at church ignited a passion for fostering. They went on to meet an elderly couple who had fostered a baby until adoption further inspiring them. Libby’s research into fostering led to the placement of a 9-month-old boy, Michael, who they later adopted.
