After all this time, I still miss each and every child that entered our home. I pray they each draw close to God’s will in their lives as they become young men and women.
Please pray for each foster family caring for the children in their home who have had children leave. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow. Or the next. Most foster caregivers have to say goodbye more than once.
Fostering was a calling, fostering is Our calling, but God never said doing His Will, brings JOY all the time.
But He did say He is here for those who follow. I have seen, felt and know that God watches over each child who have left our home and each child who our family might not see until heaven. I have peace in knowing our family’s commitment to our purpose in fostering for 13 years. Then, adoption brought us JOY through obedience and the commitment to live vicariously though fostering! Yes, even in the saddest of times, we can find joy.
In the end, when we stand before God, we can say we Followed, Served, and Advocated though our Commitment of fostering and now.
