Foster Parent License

Mid June we finalized the beginning of a new chapter in our family.  We were licensed as Foster Care workers in the State of Kansas.  Our home is now open to foster children for short term, long term, respite and emergency care.  Due to our move in December, we will most likely not be getting longterm placements in our current home.  But, we can get calls for the other.

Our family believes that it is our calling to reach out and help those in need and share the over abundance of blessings He has given us. The Bible teaches us of helping orphans and widows and of sharing His Love to the World around us. The process of becoming foster parents (or a "Foster Family" as we refer to ourselves as) was relatively simple compared to the struggles that children in foster care face.

Please join us in prayer for our new ministry and also, I would ask that you pray about becoming a foster/adopt family as well.  There are so many children in need.

"Pure religion and undefiled before God and our Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world"
James 1:27
