Ruth Gonzales accepts a plaque from West Jordan Mayor Kim Rolfe at the June 8 city council meeting for being “2016 Salt Lake Foster Mother of the Year.” Gonzales and her husband have accepted more than 100 children into their home through the foster care program and have built additional rooms into their West Jordan house to make room for these guests. The couple adopted two sibling groups of five children when the children were unable to reunite with their biological families.
