Over the course nearly two decades, an of astounding 250-plus foster children have received temporary refuge in the home of Ann and Ralph Fullmer. Eight of them stayed and were adopted, joining the Fullmersâ biological sons Ralph Jr. and Darrell.
Yet Ann, 62, insists, âWeâre nothing special. Weâre just us. Theyâre my kids.â
This is a great understatement.
She is the epitome of what Motherâs Day celebrates: dedication, constancy and unfailing love. Her need to reach out to children when they needed her most is what sets her apart.
