Lubbock family named Foster Family of the Year

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock family is being recognized for opening their home to children.

Clyde and Sharron Boyd were named Foster Family of the Year for the state of Texas on October 9th. They have been foster parents for five years, and they say they have no plans of stopping. "Lots of kids out there need love and we got plenty to give," says Clyde Boyd.

Bair Foundation Social Services Worker Cathy Seil has worked with the Boyds for two years, and nominated them for the award. "Each agency in the state nominates families for each category. We write letters of recommendation why they make such an excellent family. There's lots of kids in this home, up to 10 at a time, always make appointments, never miss anything, very creative with the way they parent each kid," says Seil.

The Boyds have nine children in their home right now - three biological, five adopted, and one foster child.
