I started my morning with this article, shared by a friend on Facebook. Talk about heart-wrenching! But this boy is not alone in wanting a family.
Christians, the task of tackling the list of waiting children in our country’s foster system is not too large. If one family from every church would open their home to a child or sibling group, we could provide the needed homes. What a testimony that would be to the world about our Father God’s love for His children. I know all too well that caring for these children is not an easy task, but it is worth it.
If you have questions or just want to chat about this, leave a comment or email me. We’d love to help connect you with resources in your area.
