In the ten years that I was blessed to be able to serve more than 23 children as a foster parent, I was able to grow in so many ways.

We had three of the sweetest little kids stay with us. They had seen so much hardship in their tiny short lives.

Then we had a little boy that was whipped with an extension cord so hard that he had scars across his back. Although the wounds heal, the pain remains. He was so angry when he came to us. But by time he left, he had made so much progress! He had learned how to be a little boy again!

We took in two little boys that were terribly abused. They had parents that did horrible things to them. So horrible I can’t even say what it was. They were one of the worst cases of abuse the agency had ever seen.

Each story is as unique as the child. Each child is in need of someone to love them. To tell them you are there for them. Being a foster parent gives a person a chance to make a difference in a Childs life. You can't always save them, but if you can make some small difference, I guess that is a good way to look at life! You take one day at a time! When you give all, it not only changes the lives of others, but it just may change your life too!

Matthew 18:4
Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
