I was in a foster home for a while, around the age of 14 or 15. It was a very sweet, rather large family. It was the first time in my life that I was able to see how a "real" family was supposed to be. It was an amazing blessing for me. People who do this, and truly put their hearts into it, make such a great impact.Was thinking on this, does anyone here do it? Or were fostered themselves? Can you share your experiences?
My church supports Foster care programs. We work with locals in our area and we help minister to the families and the children. It can be difficult, but a blessing, too. I would definitely pray about it and let God lead you. Bob is correct. You have to be led into any type of ministry work. Seek God and see if this is what he wants you to do. If it's not this, he will show you what he does want you to do.Was thinking on this, does anyone here do it? Or were fostered themselves? Can you share your experiences?
