As followers of Christ, we are called to emulate his love, compassion, and care for the most vulnerable among us. In Matthew 19:14, Jesus says, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." These words serve as a poignant reminder of the importance of safeguarding and nurturing the children in our midst. By opening our hearts and homes to children in need, we participate in God's redemptive work and embody his love in a tangible way.
Our faith teaches us that we are all part of God's family, bound together by his grace and mercy. Through foster care, we have the extraordinary opportunity to extend this familial love to children who may have never experienced the warmth and security of a loving home.
I understand that the idea of embarking on the journey of foster parenting may feel daunting, and you may have concerns about the challenges that lie ahead. But be assured that our faith community and Holy Family Services will walk alongside you every step of the way. HFS provides comprehensive training, ongoing support, and a network of dedicated professionals to ensure that you have the tools and resources necessary to provide a nurturing and stable environment for these precious children.
