Foster care is a crazy tornado of emotions!

Meet our Guest!
Angie Ringger and her husband Mike currently parent five children in their home—three biological children, one adopted, and one foster placement. During the 15 years of their marriage, God has increased their trust in Him by leading them to take huge steps of faith and courage. Angie lays “foster care” at Jesus’ feet constantly, as she loves the children with whom God has entrusted her, regardless of the length of time they are in her home, as well as desires to see success and long-lasting change and healing in her foster children’s biological families. She loves seeing what Jesus can do with a broken life!
