Maxine's Story: Featured Foster Alumna
Maxine Archibald was born into an abusive household and spent her early childhood severely ill. She credits a child welfare worker for removing her from her birth father when she was 9 and placing her with loving foster parents. For 13 years her forever family raised her. Looking back on her life, she believes her marriage, her children, grandchildren, and her business career, would have not been possible if not for her foster parents.

At the time, Talynn was living in a foster home in another state. They talked on the phone, exchanged letters, but Lucien knew she had to meet this child.
