Among the many things that the month May is known for is something very special, very personal to me. May is National Foster Care Month.

My wife and I were foster parents for over 12 years. To this day, it’s some of the best memories of our married life. And yes, in those years, we also had a lot of stress, ups, downs, wins, and losses. But such is the life of a foster parent. You just need to know that going in.

“Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me”.

Fred Rogers

In this video, which I produced with my wife, we share our foster care story and our advice to anyone thinking about being a foster parent. Our prayer is that you’re encouraged to try it or at least find out more.

If there’s only one thing you take from our story, remember this: foster parenting is about giving your all for a child who may have nothing left.

I really hope you consider being a foster parent. If you can’t, at least consider supporting other foster parents or an agency near you.
