Welcome to our journey through foster parenting and adopting. I am so glad you have visited my blog.

My prayer is that through my experiences on this journey, I can be of help to someone else. I want Jesus Christ to be glorified through this blog because it is only through him that I am able to make this journey.

Here we go, let's start this journey together.

With All My Heart

Friday, January 14, 2011


My heart has been aching lately for a placement.    Please do not misunderstand me, I do not wish bad things on families.  I wish that there would never be a need for foster homes.  In a perfect world that would be the case, but we do not live in a perfect world and the reality is that there is a need for foster homes and there are tons of children in our world that absolutely without a doubt need to be removed from the horrible conditions they live in. 

Now having said that I want to say that I do feel that God and God alone has placed this desire in me to be a foster mom.  He has called me to the ministry of taking care of his children and that is why I long for a placement. 

We had completely closed our home except for 2 and under girls but today I realized how badly I missed the children and I think we are going to open our home back up to any age or sex child for emergency, short term placements and respite care. 

I think that this decision will be a good chance for us to minister to children who need us but will not tie us down to where we cannot take our little girl if the call comes.  I believe that just as God sent Jacob to be ours forever that he will also send me my daughter one day.  I am just afraid that closing my home to only a little girl is completely out of his will and that is not where I want to be.  So here we are God, use us as you see fit.  We are here for your children whomever that may be.


  1. Excited for you and can't wait to hear about your new additions. Fun times. :)

  2. i totally understand and feel the same way often. God puts that desire there i am sure.


I would love to hear what you have to say after reading my blog. I hope that what you read is helpful. Please feel free to share.
