The Oakes Family
Dianna and Robin Oakes have been foster parents for almost 23 years and currently have 2 foster children and 2 biological children in their home. These children consist of girls aged 2 and 16 years old, and boys aged 10 and 13 years old. The 13 year old boy is autistic and requires extra accommodations. The water that flooded their home nearly reached the top of the fence line and they had furniture literally float throughout the house. The Oakes are obligated to meet "minimum standard licensing requirements" set by the state of Texas. If the family does not meet these requirements, the foster children entrusted to them will be in danger of removal and separation. Providing the Oakes family with the items they need to meet the state requirements would go a long way to keeping the children in this loving home.
You can help support the Oakes family by purchasing one or more items from their Walmart Registry (Sponsored), donating an Amazon Gift Card, or by sponsoring one or more of the larger "big ticket" needs, including a refrigerator (Sponsored) and a dishwasher (Sponsored).
