A few months ago, I heard the story of a little one that was in foster care. It broke my heart and I spent a while trying to get myself together. When I shared with Josh that I felt a tug towards the idea of foster and adoption care, He was very understanding and supportive.
As we began exploring options, we both felt we needed to submit paperwork and see where to go from there. Then we learned about a Christian organization that provides support & training for adoption/foster care. Needless to say, it's now been over fourth months and we are still a long way from completing the journey.
We still have lots to go through before we can get approved, but I will say this...after finishing the first leg of training this weekend my heart is just broken for these children. I think my outlook on life is changing and regardless of how HE chooses to use us through this journey... I know we are heading in the right direction.
If you think of us, please say a prayer! That we would keep our eyes focused on His will for our life. And to those of you who left words of encouragement and prayers on the last post...thank you so much! It means so much to me. And yes, moving is now in question since we were approved for the training process....but He knows.
Today, I'm just thankful for a powerful Savior, a loving husband with a big heart and so many wonderful people working together to achieve a common goal. <3
