Every Child Should Belong

If you've listened to my show for any length of time, you know I am like the old woman who lives in a shoe with so many kids I don't know what to do. Three of my 10 children came to me thru birth, the rest came to me thru adoption, some when they were very young and some as adults.

Three of my adopted kids are siblings that came to me thru foster care and that's why my foundation, Point Hope, is so passionate about foster care and getting kids out of the system and into permanency. My kids would've been far better off to have been left with their biological mother, who, though she had issues, loved them dearly. But they weren't.

They were passed from home to home where they were abused and starved and horrible things happened to them. By the time I got them out of foster care they were so broken that it has taken a whole lot of patience and a whole lot of love for God to put their hearts back together again. But they are healing and doing a lot better.

If you have the space in your home and your heart and you desire to adopt a child, look into foster care. Give a child a sense of belonging and love. These kids are our future, don't forget that. They are precious and yet so often they are tossed aside.

Even if you don't have room for a child in your home, you can still help a child.
