Comment on I Can’t Convince Anyone to be a Foster Parent by Alyce http://operationleapoffaith.com/i-cant-convince-anyone-to-be-a-foster-parent/#comment-927 Fri, 01 Jan 2016 19:03:07 +0000 http://operationleapoffaith.com/?p=1551#comment-927 I love your writing. It always goes to my heart and challenges me, even though I’m too old to parent. But I’m not too old to love those who are feeling abandoned or those who are lonesome.

I have had many children in our home to care for, for a limited time. My birth children always seemed to need extra care at that time. I would love to know how your birth children are coping with having to share you with these precious children.

As my children are now older than you are, I see benefits of having all those children with us. They all have a soft spot for children and for people who are hurting. It takes a different form than adoption, or foster care, but it is caring for those who are marginalized.

Thank you for honestly sharing your heart and struggles.
Alyce Ross

This is beautiful and the trauma is brutal, but the beauty is holy. I cannot wait until Gray and I move in the new year and go through the process all over again to finally have a finalized home study and foster adopt a sibling set. Oh the beauty, my sweet sister in Christ. Praying for you all. P.S. You don’t know me, but you know my precious mother-in-love, Sarah.

Blessings,
Kimberly

Comment on I Can’t Convince Anyone to be a Foster Parent by Pattie Hannah http://operationleapoffaith.com/i-cant-convince-anyone-to-be-a-foster-parent/#comment-923 Tue, 01 Dec 2015 21:11:15 +0000 http://operationleapoffaith.com/?p=1551#comment-923 “There’s a glory that comes from reaching the end of yourself because that is the place you see God.” Katie, these words are imprinted on my heart. I needed to hear them to day. Perhaps this is the ultimate call of God on all of our lives….to follow Him into whatever trench He ordains, or permits. Dying to self is never easy, but pouring yourself out for the sake of a child is Holy work. As my daughter-in-law shared with me recently….there is no crown without cost. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, will crown your life and the lives of your children with good things. You can count on it!

Love and prayers,

Pattie

I get what you’re going through and it IS worth it. It’s so, so hard and beautiful all at the same time, right? Keep up the good work as you begin and begin and begin again.
