When you hear the phrase foster care, what do you first thing of?

The month of May is Foster Care Awareness month and I wanted to share a few things with you from my archives. I have never been a foster mom, but I have plenty of friends that have and are currently foster parents. If you are interested in foster care, these resources are for you to dive further into as you figure out if this might be right for you.

Plenty of people have opinions on foster care, but I encourage you to seek out information that might debunk some of the myths you might have about foster care.


Read everything you can get your hands on. Listen to people's stories about their journey in foster care. Then take baby steps and see what happens. It will do no harm to request information from an agency, or to attend an information meeting. Ask God to use those meetings to clarify if this is right for your family.



I was recently sent this video called ReMoved. Their website says this: We made ReMoved with the desire that it would be used to serve in bringing awareness, encourage, and be useful in foster parent training, and raising up foster parents.

I encourage you to find a few minutes today and let this video sink in to your heart:
