Inspiring one more person to invest in the life of a foster child, by providing support, being a partner or becoming a foster/adoption family.
Here are the kinds of beliefs that God our Father accepts as pure and without fault. When widows and children who have no parents are in trouble, take care of them. James 1:27 NIR
God’s heart beats for the orphan, the father-less, and children with no place to call home – and so must ours. We are ordinary people willing to act in extraordinary ways so that ONE MORE child’s life can be forever changed. YOU CAN BE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD!
