Foster children really have a bad wrap. They're the one's who suffer most from the poor decisions and lack of responsibility of their parents. Let's face it, there is not a huge back log of paperwork at the children's division because they have an abundance of families applying to be foster parents. I know this is something that most of us feel is way out of our comfort zone. We are struggling just to keep our own families on track. There are MANY reasons or excuses we can come up with to not even entertain the idea of what it must be like for these children and for sure we don't even want to consider putting our selves/our family out there to provide a home for these kids. It's scary, way scary right? Guess what? Fear is not from God. There is one good reason to open ourselves and our families to helping others in need, God commands us to. And when we serve Him in this way, we meet HIM. He is right by our side and the Holy Spirit fills us up. We become more like Him when we serve the least of these. Read this first hand account from a mom/family who meets with Jesus daily through providing their home, their family to other children without.
