Wesley and Rachel’s Story

Chosen - Adoption | Foster & Orphan Care Outreach | Mentoring


When Wesley and Rachel opened their home to foster a child, their hearts were full of love. However, they did not fully realize the needs of their foster son, Garrett*. A few short months into welcoming Garrett to their family, trauma-related behavioral issues began to manifest. As Wesley put it, “sometimes it felt hopeless.”
They turned to Chosen for tools and resources to help Garrett gain control over his behaviors, and to learn to connect with him. Throughout their 7-month placement, healing began to take place. Today, Wesley and Rachel continue to open their home to foster children.
