Behind this starting line amazing stories are unfolding. Parents teaching their children to support vulnerable children and families in foster care. Second moms and dads navigating serving children from hard places while holding a place for their first moms and dads. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, even teachers and nurses becoming family for children and youth in need.
While we find ourselves in between special times to honor our mothers and our fathers, do not forget to recognize and encourage those who are caring for children and youth in foster care.
Show Up: with coffee, books to read to the children, or a meal.
Pray-Up: ask for specific prayer requests and pray for them!
Grow-Up: educate yourself about foster care and its challenges through books, podcasts, training, some opportunities in May & June are below (resources list)
