Now that we are licensed foster parents, it was only a matter of time before we got our first call about children. It came on Tuesday!
So, Tuesday evening, we went to Wal-Mart for a baby bed, bottles, etc. Jeannie and Kelsey spent all day yesterday rearranging bedrooms for our welcome additions. They’ll be coming this late afternoon.
I can’t go into specifics because of confidentiality; all I can say is we have two children. One is a 17 year-old mother and the other is her child, age 11 months. They come to us from another foster home in the area.
I count it a blessing that we will be able to nurture these two young people, and show them the love of Christ as best we can. Please pray for us! This is definitely a life-changing event in our household, and there are sure to be good and bad days. But as long as we keep the children’s best interests in our hearts and minds, and be there for them…well, little by little perhaps their lives will change for the better.
As time goes on, perhaps we can share more if we are allowed. Until then, keep us in your thoughts! 🙂
