Ballard Family

The Ballard Family

From Linda P, a Mountain Circle Social Worker: “We are so blessed to have this family as part of the Mountain Circle family. They are wonderful people, and incredible caregivers – constantly positive, flexible, and loving. Thank you!”

James and Ami have been foster parents since 2012 and have proven to have great instincts with children placed in their care. They are committed to the success of the foster children they care for as well as their biological son.

Ami has a background in nursing at a mental health clinic and assistant teaching with special needs children, both of which she loved doing. She states she has a strong love for children and animals. James works at Sierra Pacific as a supervisor. James’ hobbies are fishing, hunting, camping, and motorcycling. He also plays guitar and is an avid collector of music, as well as dabbles in writing his own songs. As a family, their hobbies include visiting family in Red Bluff, shopping in Reno, hiking, going to the lake to boat and swim, snow shoeing, and watching their son play soccer.

Mountain Circle would like to say THANK YOU for being an inspiration to loving caregivers everywhere!
