Jose and Manolo
About four years ago, Jose and Manolo decided to become foster parents with the intention of helping children in need, not to mention wanting to start a family of their own. Diego was placed with them while DCFS was issuing their license, which was only a short time after they completed the licensing process and the required training courses. Diego has given both Jose and Manolo an opportunity to learn about children’s development, as well as parenthood, and has enriched their lives with his joy and love. Diego has recently completed his first year in pre-kindergarten. He loves reading and math, and his parents are extremely proud of his academic achievements—he can read at a first grade level!
“Diego represents a great opportunity for us to serve humanity,” Manolo Stated. “Our son’s presence in our lives also represents a tremendous responsibility since his mission will impact the lives of many in the years to come.”
