  • Mains family grows by two

    Tom and Maria Mains wanted children of their own.

    After the Williamstown couple got married they tried for several years but had no luck.

    Maria, a 2001 graduate of Grant County High School, began to lobby Tom, a 1989 graduate of Pendleton County High School, about becoming foster parents. It took five years of sweet-talking before he finally agreed.

    In 2006, they received their first “children.” They’ve fostered nearly a dozen children since then. Some stay as little as 36 hours, while others have been with the Mains’ for two years.
