My fostering journey began 28 years ago with a 15 year old teenager who needed help. It soon became my full time ministry. God has since blessed me with over 70 daughters, many many wonderful grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. (All through the foster lineage). I am honored to call them my family....and my heart and soul.
Being a foster parent means being a soft place for a child to land when their little lives are experiencing big changes. 14 years into this journey, it's the hardest and most rewarding job I've done. Know that you are not alone! There are people willing to help you through this journey of healing.
-I would like to tell you a little story about why I became a foster parent...I was abused as a child and a victim of sexual abuse. I also know how it feels to be in a foster home and my own experience wasn't a good one. Due to this I wanted to become a foster parent. When I became a foster parent I decided I would treat my foster children as if they were my own kids. My personal experience is the reason I am a foster MOM today.
