Called to Obedience
People ask us why we foster and I've often said it's a calling. I'm not sure that's true. I'm not sure we're called specifically to foster children, but I know ALL believers are called to be obedient. The Bible is filled with commands. "Therefore go and mak...

Our Almost Children

Beginning Again
After our first two girls went home we put our house on hold. It gave us time to regroup and rest a bit. We weren't sure how long we would need. I had started a new school year and definitely needed some time to focus on work. After 2 weeks we started getti...

Social Workers
March is Social Work month, so it seems only fitting to post about the people who have helped us along in this journey. We foster with a private agency. When DFCS can't find a placement in one of their homes they contact the private agencies to see if they ...
