Your availability is often more important than your ability. Many people are unaware of what foster kids endure, others are indifferent, and some are procrastinating before they make a difference. Love includes sacrifice. The best opportunities in life can also be the most difficult endeavors. No one is saying that becoming involved in the life of a foster child will be easy or simple. Prayer for foster kids is important, but love also takes action. A small effort can make a big difference in the healing and transformation of a child.

Find local resources and agencies on the map that can assist you and provide information about how you can participate. If you don’t want these private services, you can contact your state and explore options that way too.
