Since Tammy Young became a foster parent six years ago, she’s taken care of 35 children, including the five who reside at her St. Mary’s County home. To support her foster children — ages 4, 6, 8, 9 and 16 — it helps that Young receives a six-figure salary as a data architect with the U.S. Department of the Navy. A single mother of two adult children, she also has guardianship of a teenager who turned 18 in March.
