Ysrael and Sulema Hinojosa have four children and four grandchildren from their 46 years of marriage but have been temporary caregivers to many more children who have lived at their home through their work as foster parents. The couple, who recently won the Texas Council of Child Welfare Board's Foster Parent of the Year award for Region 8, have fostered 86 children in the 21 years since they took in their first foster children. "I tell my husband, 'As long as I can get out of bed and take care of them, I'll take care of the babies,'" she said of her role as a foster parent.
