Our family is a foster family. That means that kids come to live with us for a time when their families are not able to safely care for them. We've been a foster family since December of 2013, and we have always struggled to succinctly communicate the experience and motivation behind fostering. This video tells some of our story and does it very well.
We are so thankful for Apex Anthologies, the story telling ministry of our church, Apex Community. Molly Bellanco and Ben Riggs, working through that ministry, created this wonderful video from our family's story. If you are encouraged by our story, you must visit the Anthologies site to see dozens more like it.
I do not post this for our glory. Please, do not celebrate us. Join us in caring for the fatherless.
Apex has a wonderful resource on their site describing many ways you can get involved in Orphan Care. Fostering is one of many ways. I'd encourage you to learn more about Prevention, Providing, Partnering, and Parenting for these kids in need.
Lastly, please know that if you want to learn more about our story, fostering, or orphan care in general, Melissa or I would love to talk with you. I'm open to speaking to your church, to your family, or just talking on the phone.
Thanks for your interest in our story. It is a small part of the story God is writing among all of us, and I look forward to seeing what He does next.
