There is so much hurt and disappointment within the foster care system. Sometimes, however, there is good news! I have had three ‘good news’ phone calls in the past few days and for that I am so grateful.
The first was from a friend whose family had just finished foster care training, completed the home study process along with all the paperwork-only to be told that their family could not foster because of the number of young children in their home. Talk about frustrating! But, after a divine appointment with someone very knowledgeable about DHS’s inner workings and protocol- their family is getting a waver!
The next call was from a dear friend that has been in a difficult situation fighting for the lives of the two little ones that she and her husband were planning to adopt. It was a mess. But then the reprieve…a unanimous decision from the powers-that-be in their favor! PTL.
The last call came today from a friend who had just found out (after a challenging and faith-stretching few months) that her foster child’s parental rights were terminated and they will be able to adopt! YEAH!
Just wanted to share some good news. The Bible says “how beautiful are the feet of those that bring good news”…wish that promise was literal-and would benefit my ‘winter feet’! :)
