Foster and Adoption Ministry

Open Your Heart. Open Your Home.

We are foster parents because we wanted to make a difference in the life of a child. Kids have come to our home to heal and grow and we have provided safety and security for them. Becoming foster parents was one of the best decisions we ever made.

~ Brenda Lytle, RN, Director of Ascension’s Care Ministries

Brenda Lytle, Director of Care Ministries, has two adopted daughters.

There are 6,918 children in foster care in WI; 1,380 of these children are waiting for adoptive families. The children in foster care are from all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. The children’s average age is 5 to 14 years-old. While there is a need for foster and adoptive families for children of all ages, an area of unmet need continues to be finding families for older youth and sibling groups. Perhaps you are looking for information about fostering or adopting, or perhaps you are a foster parent or have adopted a child and are looking for resources and support. This ministry may be for you. Contact Brenda Lytle at if interested.
