Parrish Family – printable
Emmanuel, Marquis and Ollie Parrish are three brothers, ages 10, 8 and 7, who are placed together in a foster home. They had been adopted by a relative, but things did not work out for them there, and they had to be removed. This has been difficult for them, but they are thankful to be together. Their foster mom is warm and understanding with them and is helping them to have a good life. They do well in school and are playing sports. Please help to give these boys a special holiday to remember in their new foster home.
