Hello, I’m nominating my foster mother Virginia Lynne Walsh and Foster Father Wade Walsh of Wake, VA. They gave selflessly to my upbringing when I was 10 yrs old and even though I had to move from their home as a foster child, they stayed in my life on and off for the next 30+ years and have since shown great love to my daughter also.
The Walsh family taught me how to be a mother, something I would have never learned without them because my biological mother was not capable of raising me. I’m now 42 yrs old and my daughter 20, and my foster family is all the loving family we have (literally). They planted a seed in me 30 yrs ago and I’m now a successful, healthy minded person in great part to their selfless love for a child she did not have to care for.
