Foster and Adoptive Families: Living John 14:18

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

-John 14:18

It takes a special anointing of grace and a heart that beats with Christ’s to take foster children into your home. The beauty of adoption reflects so accurately our status into the family of God. However just like our own stories, the paths adoptive and foster families walk are not always smooth.

Foster and adoptive families see beautiful transformations in little lives, experience the joy of loving children, and restore hope to kids who desperately need someone to believe in them. The trials that come with the step of faith it requires to care for adoptive or foster children can be very burdensome. Unexpected behaviors, establishing trust, feeling alone in the process- all of these are often realities for these families. Wrapping around these families with love and support is one of the beautiful ways we as the church can “carry each others burdens”  (Gal. 6:2).

Becoming certified to care for adoptive and foster families children is one of the first ways to begin to make yourself available to families in need of love and support. The blessing a night out can be to a foster family cannot be overstated. New Life is hosting a Respite Care Training class February 18 from 9:00am-3:00pm completely for free. Without committing to anything, this is one way we as a family can extend our arms to the families on our community.

Class size is limited, so register early. For additional information, contact Lucretia Miller at 303-755-4756 (toll free 1-800-451-5246) or email:
