Success Stories

As Centerstone’s Adoption Program Manager, Barbara Pennington unites families. On any given day she juggles up to 25 foster care and adoption cases. Many children she works with are victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. They are the children who need her most. They are the children who need Centerstone.

Using Centerstone’s foster parent network, Barbara finds temporary families for Centerstone’s most vulnerable clients. Barbara hopes to reunite children with their biological families, but realizes that isn’t always possible. In those cases, she strives to transition foster families to forever families.

“I love these kids,” Barbara said. “Seeing the happiness on their little faces when they are adopted into a new family is an absolute joy. I am honored to be included in that turning point in their lives.”
