Focus on our Families – The Harpels
Scott and Gretchen Harpel were approved as foster parents with CONCERN’s Southeast office in November 2005. Just a month after approval, they received “that” call. This is the call every new foster parent wants to receive – their first placement.
This call was about a baby girl who needed them as much as Scott and Gretchen wanted a child in their home. Little Aliyah was born premature at just 3 lbs., 6 oz. Aliyah was born addicted to drugs and had problems with her heart. It was also possible that she would be mentally retarded, have vision problems or have cerebral palsy.
