Then and now: the Kearney family from when the siblings were all first brought together to now.
At HFS, we are so lucky that our own board members have their own experiences with adoption and foster care. Our very own HFS Board of Directors Secretary, Marianne Wright, was adopted in 1960 by Nancy and Jim Kearney of San Francisco, California, who had chosen to adopt through the City and County Department of Children and Family Services. Ready and excited to expand their family even more, just two years after Marianne was adopted, the Kearneys decided to adopt once again and welcomed Jim Jr. to their family. And just eighteen months later, in August 1963, the family welcomed the last family member, Steven, this time by natural birth. Forever families like the Kearneys are made possible through adoption services.
