DCFS


As you all know Joseph and I have been preparing ourselves to be Foster Parents and we would like to thank you for all your love and support we have received, especially while we were preparing our house for the home study that we are having today (10/29/08). I know that there are mixed feelings about kids in foster care and we just want to remind everyone that they are children of God. They deserve a chance just like everyone else. In the 4 yrs my mom and I were foster parents we got everything from teenagers to infants. I can't tell you in words how rewarding it is to see this families turn around and get reunited. These kids have so much to offer the world they just need someone to show them how and to give them a chance. We hope everyone can put the foster care stereotypes behind them and see the kids for what they can be and what they can offer the world.
