Imagine that you are 5 years old and a social worker has just picked you up from your home. And as you drive away she tells you that you're going to have to live with strangers until mom can make it safe for you at home again. You are in shock and overwhelmed with emotions: anger, fear, powerlessness, hopelessness. But do you know what would make it worse . . . a LOT worse? Also being separated from your brothers and sisters, ages 1, 4, 7 and 11, who are going to different foster homes. Just imagine.
A special focus for Agape is keeping large sibling groups together in a foster home through Enhanced Foster Care (EFC). Several families have committed to partnering with Agape to keep siblings together however we are in desperate need for more of these families. Will you consider partnering with us in this ministry? Training and support is vital for families to be successful, but the starting point is the family being led by the Spirit to say, "Tell me more." Contact Buddy Renahan for more details on becoming an Enhanced Foster Care family.
