    foster mom to more than 100 kids dies at 46

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...gn=Feed%3A+hou

    Patti Hanson, 46, Sante Fe resident but long time Houston area resident , was one very busy woman in her relatively short life; and she took in over 100 foster children over a 13 year period. She was still in contact with some of them . She sounds like she was a very loving , giving person. I thought WS's might like to read about her

    IF this link doesn't work, and you are interested, this came from the Houston Chronicle obituary page.

    My condolences to this family. We could certainly use more ladies like this one.

    R.I.P. Ms Hanson.

    What a legacy of love and hope Ms Hansen has left. God bless this woman, her family and all of the children she showed unconditional love to.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    She is definitly special.

    We're flexible like that.

    Wow, she must have either continually taken in groups of older kids who stayed a few years then became adults and left or taken in many who needed the temporary care. I can imagine it was highly stressful at times, and she was very special.
