Make a Difference Monday: Why Foster Care Workers Need Your Support!

From my experience in child welfare as a foster care worker, this job is often thankless and emotionally stressful. At the end of the day you still feel that your work is never done because there is always more you could be doing, the needs are so great.  As a caseworker, you are responsible for the entire well-being (safety, emotional, educational, medical, etc.) of the children on your caseload and this is a huge burden to carry. There are so many who work long hours, receive crisis calls in the middle of their family time, and struggle to sleep at night because they are worried about […]

let’s pray these kids into a family!

We recently received this sweet email: I had to share my little chat with my son (who used to be a foster child himself) about the Forgotten Initiative bands. I bought one for each of my children so they could pray for the child on the band to find their family and feel loved. I explained this to them. He came in and told me that his name isn’t on the band and he seemed puzzled by that. Then after telling him again who was on the band and why, he just lit up. Then said,”I have a family now!” he […]

Make a Difference Monday: in Columbia, SC

Happy Monday!  It’s Anna from Columbia, SC.

Make a Difference Mondays: In Augusta County, VA!

Greetings from Charisa in Augusta County, Virginia! We’re off to an awesome start with our TFI community here in Augusta County. We were blessed to have 37 people come out to our first meeting to hear from our local foster care moms and dads and from an adult who grew up in foster care. Their stories touched our hearts. Immensely. Here’s one from our friend who grew up in foster care. “You are not only changing that life [the foster child’s], you are changing generations. My children’s lives today are different because of my foster mom. This is something that we lose […]

Hey, it’s Jami ~ After launching this blog yesterday, a women from Central IL checked out the needs in Bloomington/Peoria area and read that someone had donated several backpacks that needed to be filled.  She emailed us right away with such excitement because her church had all the items needed for Journey Bags, except the backpacks!  They had been praying for a way to find/fund backpacks and after seeing this need, she knew her prayers had been answered. This got me thinking.  We can NEVER underestimate our role in the Body of Christ.  Our purpose.  One buys the backpacksOne fills the […]
