Foster Care { Update }


WOOHOO!! 

We are completely finished with everything on our end to become Foster Parents! I can't tell you how relieved I am to have all the paperwork, class time and interviews complete!

My family has prayed for this for months and months and to be so close is so exciting and honestly a little scary. The Lord has lead us up to this point and I know he will continue, we just have to let him. 

I can't wait for that little one to bless my family and for us to hopefully do the same for its life. 

Over the last several months these verses of scripture has helped me to prepare for our new journey:

James 1:27  
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Psalms 82: 3 
 Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.

Mark 16:15 
 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation...

Proverbs 31: 8  
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.

So with all that I urge you to prayerfully consider what God would have you offer to a child that is in need. 

Please consider watching these very short videos on foster care and the effects it has.  

And last but not least please pray for my family as we adventure into this new chapter of our life. It should be about a month before we have an addition or two to welcome in and try to help them heal from what they have witnessed.
