Deciding to become a foster parent is a large and difficult decision.
Parent-child relationships don’t stop at 18 years old. Adoption doesn’t need to either.
“I don’t know why we were put in this, but I know this is what we’re supposed to do. We need to stand in the gap.”
“All the challenges he’s had in his 5 years of life had an answer. As we enter 2023, we are faced with so much uncertainty but abound in hope.”
“Despite all the challenges and in face of all struggles, there is so much love in our house.”
“We’ve enjoyed our life as a couple and we are excitedly anticipating being a family.”
“10 years, 9 kids, 1 grandson later, and I’m still fostering. This is not about me, my feelings, or my needs.”
“Society has moved forward, but old-school stereotypes remain ever so present.”
“My experience of being adopted has been an emotional roller coaster. I will always wonder where my birth family is, but in the end, I will always be thankful.”
“I always knew there would be multiple versions of my children. What I didn’t consider is the many versions of myself parenthood would require me to be.”
