Linda and Ed Lent


Since September 2011, Ed and Linda Lent have welcomed children in foster care into their home. While they never had biological children of their own, they desired to help the community's children in need. "As a foster parent, you play a fulfilling role in the life of a child," said Linda. "You have the opportunity this scary time in their lives easier by providing them the attention and love they need." Linda and Ed love each child as though they were their own. One of the Lents' favorite moments as a foster family was the day they adopted their very first foster child, Cayden, and his sister, Nina.
