Our family did not get into fostering for religious reasons, but foster parenting happens to be quite
congruent with Christian faith and practice. In fact, to do it right, we have to emulate God.
My promise and my nature is to show you what love feels like-- in the way that I touch you, speak to you, feed you, comfort you, anticipate your needs and seek to meet them. I will welcome you into my house with celebration and great joy, and here in this house I will demonstrate to you time and again that love is mightier than fear, that justice need not be cruel, that wounds are temporary, that
brokenness can be healed, that evil can (and must) be conquered.
When you, child, grow up to love someone else with that same kindness and fierce devotion, when you prefer repentance from wrongdoers over vengeance against them, when you enter into another soul’s pain or suffering in order to transform it, I will see myself in you and be glad.
