Foster Care

It was the fall of 2011 when Alison and Chris Thompson joined Cray as foster parents.  Since becoming foster parents they grew from a family of two to a family of five, making their home a forever home for D’Wayne, Kayla, and Isaiah. The Thompson’s have done both respite care and long term foster care.  They have enjoyed taking trips with the kids who come to stay with them.  This summer they were able to take everybody to the beach.  “It was so fun seeing the kids play in the ocean, and even though it was a ten hour trip the kids did pretty well.“  The Thompson’s are also very appreciative of the support they have received from the Cray staff.  “We  have received excellent training, and know that if something happens, a Cray staff member is only a phone call away.”  It is hard to believe it has almost been four years since becoming foster parents, but the Thompson’s are excited about what the future holds for them and for their family
