“A loving Uspiritus foster family began caring for Destiny when she was a week shy of 2 weeks old. A year after being placed with her foster family, Destiny became available for adoption. The foster parents, unable to have children of their own, began the process to adopt Destiny. Although Destiny didn’t get a great start in life, her foster parents became her heroes, and they realized their dream of having a child.” – K. Blankenship, Uspiritus Staff

For more than 160 years, Bellewood Home for Children and Brooklawn Child & Family Services have worked separately to nurture thousands of Kentucky’s most vulnerable children.
