A Testimony of Hope

About 2 years into our marriage I began to have this overwhelming desire to be a mom. For some reason I didn’t feel our journey to parenthood would be “typical”. I knew God had laid adoption on my heart when I was very young but about a year and a half ago He spoke to me that my husband and I are called to foster. I honestly never considered it. Just like so many others I said it would be “too hard” to have to say good bye. I would get “too attached”. And my husband said the same things. But God showed us that these kids desperately need someone that gets too attached (if there is such a thing) and someone that will feel it will be too hard to say goodbye them. So we just said yes to this beautiful calling God has on our lives. In no way did we or do we feel “qualified” but what we do know is we have a safe home, with a warm bed, and so much love in our hearts to give these kids. We couldn’t be more thankful for Kings Home equipping us with the training and support that we need to be the best support for these kiddos. Our prayer and greatest hope is that we help these amazing children know Jesus for the time that they are with us. God takes the desires of our hearts and blesses them more abundantly than we can imagine. I not only get to be a mom now, but a mom to many children that truly need me.
