I Am Humboldt
A new Facebook page has recently been launched, recognizing the many interesting faces and stories of Humboldt. The page, I Am Humboldt, was created in the spirit of the Humans of New York photo project.
From the I Am Humboldt Facebook page:
Humboldt County is full of people each with their own unique story to share. We are all people, part of the human experience. Inspired by Humans of New York, this project is to share our stories through photos. We want to bring our community closer together and ask that the comments on this page remain of the positive and encouraging nature. The purpose of I am Humboldt is to illustrate how we are all unique yet, at heart, very much the same.
Today’s I Am Humboldt
posting highlighted one of our local Foster hero families:
“We’ve been providing care for over 11 years to all ages of children. It is a selfless act of loving unconditionally with a risk of being hurt. We feel every child deserves to have a safe place to live and sleep at night and it is not the child’s fault they are in care and we want them to know that. We have had over 175 placements and 10 have found their forever home with us and our family with the most recent the boys who we adopted in March! We not only accept and love the children as a part of our family but also try hard to embrace the bio family while they are in care. It is planting a seed one life at a time and hoping and watching it grow! Without communication and openness reunification with family is nearly impossible so we really strive to be an active part of each family’s lives we work with. We have adopted as old as 16 yrs old and as young as 3. I couldn’t imagine any other way to give back to our community than to embrace the kids who are hurting and in need and to show them safety and love.” Melissa & Nickie
