And other Foster Care Basics
Our goal as Foster Parents is to fall in love with and care for the child and his or her biological family. The child’s needs come first, but it is not without intentional consideration and love toward the birth parents. It is our intention to instill a healthy, head-over-heels attachment to the child in our home and help them establish healthy, appropriate attachment with us. Whatever happens to their case and care is beyond our control. All we can do is love the child and his or her family.

I hope the information above can be helpful to you as you learn more about foster care and what it entails.
Now that we’re on this journey, our eyes have opened to the realities of foster care, the real need in our community, and the prevalence of people in our surrounding circles involved in helping heal broken homes. It’s like when you get a new car and you see your car in traffic all the time. Foster care is everywhere. You just might not know it.
So, please know this: we’re just a normal, flawed, average couple that chose to say yes to a journey we believe we’re called to take. I hope our messy, imperfect efforts to love on all God’s people can be a window into a new kind of love for you to witness.
