Welcome to A Family For Every Child - Serving Families, Children and Agencies Nationwide / A Family For Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child.
Featured Family: Meet Lori and Ben!
Our names are Lori and Ben. We have one child, a four-year-old daughter named Hazel. I am a stay-at-home parent and Ben works full-time for Intel as a financial analyst and has a flexible work schedule. Our everyday life revolves completely around doing what is best for our family. We love to travel, garden, cook, go hiking, do arts and crafts, go for bike rides, play with our two doggies, and spend time with extended family. We do lots of adventuring, even if just looking for bugs in the backyard or checking to see if the carrots are ready to pick! We do a lot of reading as Hazel adores books. We do arts and crafts, play dates, nature walks. Ben always makes it home for dinner and we eat together as a family. After dinner, we play all together before bath and bed. Bedtime involves reading a few books, and Ben playing Hazel to sleep on the acoustic guitar. We love to travel as a family, and love to go camping.

2021 will mark our 13th year of providing foster and community children alike the opportunity to experience a day of pampering and fun. In 2020, we catered to more than 350 “princesses” and we expect to surpass that number in 2021! This is a regal gathering for all the children in the land.
