They had two daughters but they said the home felt empty when they went off to college. Then the Hill’s decided to become foster parents.
Al worked as a bus driver and a manager for 37 years to provide for the growing number of their foster daughters. While Ann was the strict mom who make sure house rules were at the same time a soft-spoken and dependable mother who they could always lean on.

“We made our home for everybody,” Al told Cincinnati.com.

The couple said they didn’t realize how remarkable what they have done was. “You know what you learn? There are so many people with nowhere to go,” Al said.

At 79 and 78, the Hills are retired from work and from fostering since 2020. It has been a tough time since they also lost their youngest daughter, Rhonda, at the age of 46 not long after she had been diagnosed with cancer.

Now, even though they don’t remember some of the names of their foster daughters anymore, they said they will not forget the streets where the girls moved since they left because they visited them. While some ran away or stole from them, they are glad that most of their foster daughters still come to visit them for Thanksgiving dinner.
