National FC Month (Tip #10)

May is National Foster Care Month and we thought we’d share 10 ways in 10 days you can support kids in care without becoming a foster parent.

Tip #10: Prayerfully consider becoming a foster parent

Not everyone is equipped to be a foster parent, but if you find yourself being drawn to foster families and foster kids then maybe God is working on your heart to help in more than just a support role. Prayerfully consider if this might be something your family could do. Yes, goodbyes are hard, behaviors are challenging, hugs may not come freely, and rewards may not be easily seen, but these children need loving homes who are willing to look past their own needs and do what is best for these hurting kids and families.
