Make A Difference Mondays: Rejoicing with the Angels in Heaven

A little over a month ago, Baby K’s father tried to take his own life after he had sat in a prison cell for over 6 months with no visits from family or friends. Little did he know that God had reached down from heaven to call one of the most unlikely people to go and minister to this man.

Forgotten Fridays: What About Her?

The past couple of days my heart has been weighing heavy for the birth moms behind each child we are fostering. We became aware of a recent (horrific) situation leading to the hospitalization of one of the birth moms, while another has been missing for months and another sitting in jail for a year and a half awaiting her deportation trial. As a mom, knowing how deep the love for your child runs, from the moment you hold them for the first time and lay your eyes on their precious little face. If you are a mother, you know this […]
