Meet Stephanie & Chris, one of IWR’s newest foster families! I (Stephanie) was referred to IWR by a co-worker who knew IWR needed foster families. She thought it might be a good fit for us since we had experience with Weims. My husband and I decided to give fostering a try and see what we could do to help.
We have one Weim, Diesel. He is 4 years old and we have had him since he was a puppy. Before we got Diesel, we did a lot of research on Weims trying to decide if they were the right breed for us. I think we both agree it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Diesel is such a great dog (and very spoiled). We also have our very first foster now, too!
We both enjoy walking and running with Diesel, and we also like to walk the trails at Lake Red Rock.
My husband Chris enjoys hunting, skiing, wake boarding, exercising, and anything that will take him outdoors.
I love to read, and I am currently getting back into the running mode. Most of our free time is spent on our boat at the lake near our home.
Chris is a group leader at Vermeer Corporation in Pella and I work as an underwriting assistant at GuideOne insurance in West Des Moines, although I am going back to school this fall to finish a Nursing degree.
