Gloria Leiferman Shares Love and Commitment
In 1990, when Gloria Leiferman was taking care of her 100th foster child, many thought she would slow down.After the death of her husband, Ronald, in 2002, many thought she would quit altogether.But today she is caring for her 203rd foster child. "I am really good at what I do and I am not going to quit until it is not fun anymore," said Leiferman. "To me this is my calling from God." She has responded to that calling for the past 26 years, taking care of babies as a foster mother for Catholic Charities, Nebraska Health and Human Services and the Child Saving Institute.
