Today is the day a year's worth of work and prayer comes to fruition.

Today is the day I really jump into this foster care arena.

Today is the day my heart will most likely fall in love with someone not mine.

Today is the day my life will change...forever.

Today is the day I welcome in my first foster baby for respite.

I am no longer dreaming about it, no longer wondering when it will happen.  I am no longer purposefully working through classes and red tape.

Today, I will be loving on, ministering to and most likely falling in love with a baby boy that I will only keep for 4 days.

And my life will change because I will never be able to turn my back on these children again....ever.

James 1:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Sara, I know you will be richly blessed by this adventure. We have a young friend living with us right now who has a 9 month old. She's been with us for 4 months. I know my life has been forever changed by this. But thank you for that verse. I needed that reminder, because sometimes it gets hard having someone else in your home all the time. I love her and her baby and have been very blessed, but just needed to be reminded how very blessed I am.

I'll be praying for you guys!
