2024 SCFPA Foster Family of the Year – Jessica McGaha-Anderson County

Jessica McGaha is an Anderson County foster parent licensed through Nightline Christian Adoptions. She has served as a foster parent since 2021 and has always been a strong advocate for reunification, staying in touch with the families by email or phone calls or meeting them at a park or community event. After the children return home, Jessica often keeps in touch with the children and their family members. Maintaining sibling visits for the children she fosters is a top priority as well.

The family of one child she fosters currently experienced TPR. Jessica had advocated for reunification, but when the plan changed in court to TPR, Jessica hugged the biological father showing her understanding the devastation the decision has on a parent. She and the adoption specialist are walking together alongside the child, helping her understand what is next.

Jessica is active in her local Foster Parent Association, mentoring other foster families and providing the support of a listening ear and offering advice or respite care when needed.

Thank you, Jessica, for all you do for the children and families you serve! It is our honor to recognize you as the 2024 SCFPA Foster Family of the Year!
