I was born in 1966 to a woman and family in great turmoil. by 1969 the NY state CPS decided that my mother's children were safer outside of her home and care. In 1969 Grace and Richard Webb took me in as a foster son. for the next 7 years, they raised me alongside their 4 children. They taught me their Faith and values. During that time they also took in other foster children that came and then went on to be adopted or back to their birth parents. by 1976, they were only months away from completing a process to adopt me as their own. Just before that process took place, my birth mother established a home and asked for all her children to be returned to her. Grace Webb, the only woman that I had ever known as my mother until I was 10 years old, decided that she could not stand in the way of God's plan and gave up the idea of adoption so that my birth mother could have her son in her arms. To me, there was no greater sacrifice that she could have made. For all intents and purposes, Grace Webb was my mother. At 53 years old, I still recognize that her teaching is what created the basis of my life. Everyone should know the immense amount of love that she had to give. God called Grace Webb home to be with him, and with her darling husband Richard. My heart is broken. my life is forever changed. I love you mom, I miss you so much, and I pray that you are at Peace.
