Fear is not a factor for Wendy Knapp, Mrs. California 2005.  She and her husband Paul, an Oxnard Police officer, are raising their five children (Preston - 4, Summer - 10, Jake - 11, Jared - 12, and Sadie - 13) in the same community that they were raised in.  A former junior high school teacher and foster mother of eleven years, Wendy enjoys quite time mountain biking the Santa Monica Mountains.  Earlier this year, Wendy and her daughter Sadie competed on Family Fear Factor making it to the final stunt.
Wendy''s great grandparents, grandparents, and parents have adoptive and biological children.  Following in their footsteps, Wendy and Paul had two biological children, adopted two from California, and adopted one from Guatemala.  "Give a child a chance, give a child a home" is the motto of T.O.Y.S. (Together Our Young Survive), an educational foundation that she created to promote adoption and assist children out of the foster care system.
