Kathy Bigby is...
...Graduate and Volunteer
Kathy lives in Washington State with her husband of 50 years. God spoke audibly to Kathy when she was 26 years old, telling her to, “Take care of My Children.” The next day Kathy, and her husband Rodger, began training to become therapeutic foster parents. Kathy and Rodger have 3 biological sons, 3 adopted daughters and 27 grown foster children. For 20 years they specialized in caring for teenagers and teen parents, and at times had 10 teenagers, and babies, in their family home. In 1978 Kathy and Rodger purchased a 7000 square foot home on five acres so they would have room for as many children as God sent their way. Their family van was an old green, retired, full sized, “Job Corp” bus (much to their chagrin of their children). Once a child came into the Bigby home they became a permanent part of their family.
The Bigby children are all grown now, and all are married with children, and grandchildren, of their own. Rodger and Kathy are no longer foster parents but are a part of all their children and grandchildren’s lives; biological, adopted and foster.
