OSAGE CITY—Corey and Amy Linton have been married for four years. The couple loves children, but cannot have any of their own, so about two years ago they decided the thing to do was to become foster parents. It only made sense, they said.

“She came to us in a dirty outfit, a dirty diaper and had a dirty bottle,” Amy Linton said. “My heart broke when I saw her.”
