Hello! I am thrilled you stopped by. Guardian's Promise has been in development for several years. I am a former teacher, wife, and mother of 2 very busy kiddos. While teaching in HISD & FBISD for over 12 years, my family and I have also been avidly dedicated to foster care placement for more than 20 years. I am also a Licensed Child Placing Agency Administrator (LCPAA) for the State of Texas. Over the past decade, I have recognized the need for exceptional families, as there are an abundance of precious children who need a second chance at normalcy and stability in their lives. I retired from teaching to focus on my own family; however, I found myself still wanting to support, guide and give hope to children in need. These gifts of God, our future leaders, do deserve a chance to reach their desired goals. Children truly need superheroes, and Guardian's Promise is here to help you become that superhero in a child's life. Office: 832-408-6397 Cell: 832-202-4098
