This week, one of our listeners in North Dakota sent in a Hero nomination. She writes:
My name is Christina Santini, and I would like to nominate Mrs. Kristen Curl of Bismarck, North Dakota, for Hero of the Week. She works with adults adopting special kids in Bismarck.
In January 2018, we were preparing for a court appearance to finalize the adoption of two of our foster children. However, a week before the finalization date, we got a call from the court stating we didn’t have all the paperwork necessary to finalize for one of the children and that child would have to be given back to child protective custody. Kristen is a licensed social worker and had been handling the adoption for one child but not the one whose paperwork was incomplete.
In a panic, I called Kristen desperate for help. She happened to be off that day, but she picked up the phone and bolted to her office to provide sufficient paperwork for the judge. Not only did she save the day, but she kept our little family together forever!
We’re coming up on a year of adoption. And, I believe people who are selfless and do for others simply because they’re called upon should be honored and loved! God bless you, Kristen, for what you do, and we love you so much!
Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts!
The Santini Family!
Well, Christina, how can we refuse?!?! Kristen sounds like a great person, and we’re happy that it all worked out. It’s important to shine the spotlight on adoption – those kids need good homes, and it sounds like that’s what you and Kristen Curl of Bismarck are all about!
So, Kristen – you are this week’s Kidde Hero!
