Today was our home inspection and I have to admit that I haven't cleaned so much in a LONG time. I mean doors, baseboards, the top of the fridge....the works. I figured our social worker wouldn't be that thorough (I was right), but I didn't want to take the risk.

We started our 27 hours worth of classes a few weeks ago and have learned so much about foster care and adoption. We are once again faced with a new set of decisions that need to be made...

The video below was included in a book ("Launching An Orphans Ministry in Your Church") that we are using as a guide in launching the Orphans Care Team at our church. I thought I'd include it here to bring a little more awareness and information to this need.

The foster care orientation went really well despite how LONG the day seemed. We survived and the kids survived without us for the majority of the day.

Yesterday church gave us a new prospective on how as Christian's we're called to serve (of course we've always known this but yesterday we felt God's clarity). We saw the 30,000 ft. view of our lives and how living an average, mediocre life is not God-honoring. The message was inspiring and it completely paralleled how we feel about living our lives as disciples of Christ. I felt the message was confirmation from God about the decisions we've made recently about serving and helping children. And boy did I need confirmation because some things have annoyed me lately regarding the direction in which we believe God is calling our family to move, specifically where foster care, adoption and our family growing are involved.
