Chris and Karel Clore have been licensed foster parents with Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) since April 2010. The Clores said they let God guide them in their decision for expanding their family and deciding to foster with MCH.
Chris and Karel accepted their first placement in August 2010. During their licensure, the Clores have accepted placement of three brothers, as they were born, each just one year apart. When the Clores began the process of becoming foster parents, they never dreamed they would adopt three children, but they always had hopes of adopting through foster care.
For the past two and a half years, the Clore family has been blessed to adopt their three sons through foster care. The family has participated in three National Adoption Day ceremonies and adopted three-year-old Tyler, two-year-old Patrick and one-year-old Aaron.
Chris and Karel said God placed these boys in their lives and they could not imagine their family in any other way. They have provided the boys with a loving home and family, and they thank MCH for all of the support they have received over the years.
The Clores plan to remain as foster parents to serve by providing respite for families. The Tyler outreach office is blessed to have such a loving and compassionate family as one of its own.
