Trumbull CSB Recognizes Children and Parents

Several families and children received awards Friday afternoon in Trumbull County for overcoming adversity.

Trumbull County Children Services held their annual “Rising Up and Moving On” recognition luncheon at McMenamy’s Banquet Hall in Niles.

Several people were honored for turning their lives around. James and Brandi Bobco of Liberty were one of the recipients. The couple said they were on several types of drugs including cocaine, but it wasn’t until the birth of their son Warren that they decided to clean up their act.

“Watching him, he was in the neonatal unit. He was born three pounds. He was a couple of months premature,” said James Bobco. “We had to sit there for some 20 days with him, but when it came time for him to leave the hospital, the foster family came and picked him up. We were told to leave. It was one of the hardest days of my life.”

The couple has been sober since February of last year and was granted temporary custody of their son in July. They have been involved with Meridian Community Care for their recovery.

“Words cannot even describe what I am feeling right ’cause it’s amazing,” said Brandi Bobco. “Makes all the hard work we have done worth it.”
