Bob and Linda Cornyn console each other Wednesday after the Department of Social and Health Services took custody of eight children they were sheltering. The Fife couple have taken care of more than 70 children since 1979, many with physical or mental handicaps. “I think they’re trying to punish Linda and I for trying to bypass the foster system,” said Bob Cornyn, 70. “We take them in on a respite basis to help.”
