We have been foster parents on Guam since April 2011.
We are leaving Guam at the end of May 2013.
Two years as foster parents and a big change on our hearts and our lives.
I had this crazy (unspoken) idea that I was ready for this.
That my own kids were half grown and that I could "babysit" full time for a while,
and then say good-bye to children in our home.
I don't think I am wired that way,
and I don't think that's really what God meant when he said in James 1....
27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look afterorphans and widowsin their distress
So much has changed about the way I think over the last 24 months.
I have read a lot of books.
Processed Prayed Studied Tossed ideas around with others
Processed more Changed my way of thinking
and prayed some more about how I need to change my way of thinking....
I have founded a non-profit organization to help foster kids.
(It's called Project 127 Guam)
The idea came from Colorado.
They have a Project 127 Non-profit organization with over 40 churches working together to get foster children into Godly homes. You can learn more by clicking here.
My ultimate goal is the same, that no child on Guam would be waiting for a home.
I want to show that many churches can work together.
That Christian parents will answer God's call to care for the least of these.
that they will step up;
become licensed as foster parents;
or come along side those that are and support them in big ways.
I read a quote that said, "There are no unwanted children, only unfound families" Will you pray with me?
