Today’s post comes from the heart. I share it with:
- Deep feelings
- Sincere emotions
- Love for the families I mention
Foster parents share their homes and their hearts.
They care for children who need a temporary home. They help children and families pick up the pieces of their lives.
Foster parents serve from the heart.
They love their children during good times and bad. They celebrate when children do well. They choose to love when children:
- Reject their love
- Damage their home
- Break their hearts with bad choices
Foster parents receive few rewards.
News reports usually tell only bad foster parent stories. They rarely mention the families who give good care. Yet, foster parents continue their labor of love anyway.
My parents provided foster care several years. I worked with foster families almost 30 years. I saw their love and shared their hurt.
When I retired, foster parents gave me this quilt from their hearts. I recently wrote about it for Kentucky Living magazine.
When you see foster parents, thank them from your heart for:
Happy Valentine’s Day to families who make our world a better place.
“Love one another deeply, from the heart” (1 Peter 1:22 NIV).
