Foster care is life changing. In Crawford and Sebastian counties we are at crisis level for children entering the foster care system. Hundreds of children are waiting for that one moment, that one family to change their lives. Not everyone is called to foster or adopt. But God commands every one of us to care.
James 1:27 says “religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress “. You may be the only Jesus a child in foster care ever sees. Whether through opening your home or volunteering your time or resources, you can show a child God’s love that was poured out for all of us on the cross. You may be the tool God uses to come along side the biological families and end the cycle of brokenness that is plaguing the foster care system.
There is no manual for a child in foster care. But God doesn’t always call those that are equipped, yet he equips those that answer The Call.
