Our goal as foster parents is helping families be reunified. Having patience and love and praying to God are the main ingredients of reunification. God guides us daily on how to do so. Our family works together with DHR, social workers, the parents, and the children.
When opening your home and heart to these children, it is important to pray with parents and allow them to retain some control of the decision making regarding their children. Pray with children and encourage them daily. One way that we foster a relationship with the parents of the children in our home is by facilitating open communication between the child, the parents and us as foster parents. We attempt to do all we can to support everyone involved and make every effort to reunify children with their parents.
