“Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them.” Romans 12:6a

I am the happy mother of five children, four of which are in college/graduated and one child still at home. One married with twin grandboys! I have been married to Tony for 30 years. During this next season of life, the critical need to stand up and advocate for children who cannot stand for themselves is more dire than ever before in history. And so, my life’s calling continues…
If it had not been for 2 little girls who were being sex trafficked in Rock Hill, SC by their mother, I would have continued to grieve, and yet look the other way, always asking “What could I really do?”. When I heard about these children, I committed that day to never be on the side of “doing nothing” ever again!
Since then, I have tirelessly worked to build this ministry to Ignite churches, communities and volunteers to do more…. Though there are countless ways to serve this community, I wholeheartedly believe that the winning combination is establishing Care Communities in churches.
When a family is called to foster or adopt, they bring more than just a good will, they bring with them two words that have changed societies for centuries- Jesus and a loving Family. We are better together and TOGETHER we will see change made.
Susie Boyle – Director of Outreach and Partnerships
I am passionate about working with the least of these and have been since my heart was touched and forever changed by fostering a sweet little girl in 2005 in Michigan.
Realizing this child didn’t have an adult voice in court, I felt called to be the voice of children in Foster Care when I moved to South Carolina. I have now been a volunteer Guardian Ad Litem for over ten years. It is through this role that the foster crisis became so evident and being the voice for children who have no voice has absolutely become my life calling.
I have been married for 27 years to my college sweetheart Dennis, have two amazing biological children Shayne and Avery and one beautiful bonus child named Kennedy. I also dwell with two awesome dogs and a rabbit named Ollie. In my spare time, I can be found playing soccer, working out at Burn Boot Camp or riding my paddleboard.

Hello, I’m Hannah! I first became involved with Fostering the Family when they visited my home church in 2019. My husband, Jonathan, and I felt a tug on our hearts to foster, so we decided to get involved however we could until we were in a place where we could open our home to foster children. Jonathan and I joined our church’s Care Community as family helpers and served for two years.
We both have adopted siblings and always knew we wanted adoption to be one of the avenues through which we grew our family. Later on, Jonathan and I found out we could not have biological children. After taking time to process this difficult news, we now feel like it’s a blessing more than anything, because our home will remain open for any children who may need us. We’re excited to see where God directs us with foster care and adoption in the future.
I’m honored to be part of the Fostering the Family team. I have a background in content writing, website design, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), email marketing, social media management, customer relations, and CRM platforms. I look forward to benefitting Fostering the Family with that experience however I’m able.
In our free time, Jonathan and I love to practice and record music together, walk and picnic outdoors, and spend time with family and friends. We’re active members at our church, Founded in Truth Fellowship, and volunteer to serve on the worship team and co-lead the young adults group. Our faith is an extremely important part of our life!
