The Blessing of Foster Care
There is no greater joy in this world than the joy that comes from being a Mother. Like most mothers, I sit in awe that I have been entrusted with the lives of all of these little ones.
We are the ones our children run to when they scrape their knees. We are the ones who know how to put the band-aid on just right and the ones who get to hug away the tears. Our children trust that, no matter what, we will always be there. This journey of Motherhood we are all a part of is truly an amazing blessing.
In my life, I have had the wonderful blessing to be a mother 8 times over, with 4 biological children and 4 adopted from China (3 home and one who waits for us to bring him home). Now, as I wait for our 8th child to come home to his forever family, it is such a blessing to us to know that he is being taken care of in foster care. Sam’s foster care is being provided by Love without Boundaries through the generosity of a loving family who gave of themselves to make a difference in the life of a child – our child. For this gift, we will be eternally grateful to Love Without Boundaries, Sam’s sponsor family, and to the many other families that sponsor children like Sam.
We know that today there are thousands of little Sams, Graces, Hannahs, and Johnathans waiting for their forever families in China. We can make a difference in the lives of those who wait right now by sponsoring a child in foster care through Love Without Boundaries.
So this Mother’s day, to honor our mothers whose care went unnoticed when we were growing up, the mothers on the other side of the world who will never get a chance to experience the small things that we might take for granted, and the foster moms who give so selflessly of themselves, we are making a donation to Love without Boundaries this year that will go towards sponsoring children who wait in foster care.
I hope you will join us in supporting this life-changing organization.
Amie, mom to 7, soon to be 8!
