My husband and I have some dear friends who have just finished getting certified to be foster parents. This was official last Friday, and they have already gotten a call to have a precious little baby placed with them! I’m so proud of them, and this is a really amazing thing they are doing.
They will be giving up many of their “freedoms” and their time to allow for these precious children to come into their lives, and they’re so excited to just love them and be a safe place for them. They have 2 children of their own, and they are super excited about this as well. It’s just awesome, and very inspiring and encouraging.
The difference that our friends will make (and have made as long as we’ve known them in all that they do) will be amazing. This I know for sure. There are so many precious kids that don’t have a place to call home. It’s so sad to think that this does happen.
So with that being said, do you know of anyone who is a foster parent or is in the process of becoming one? If so, once they have a child placed with them, I would encourage you to set up a Food Tidings for them. This is a new set of circumstances, and absolutely would be considered what I’d call “a transitional time of life”. I would imagine they’d love to have that love and support from you and your friends in the form of meals.
Have a great day!
