This was such a great initiative. 40 people prayed for 40 foster care children and God did amazing things in both the kids and the sponsors! Here are a couple of testimonies of His goodness! We are so thankful and over-joyed!
"My husband and I have been praying together for our sponsored foster child. This has been encouraging on so many levels. It has helped us grow closer as a couple. We have been having a really difficult time in our marriage. Our counselor said that prayer is the number one thing that changes divorce rates; a couple that prays together, stays together! It has also helped give us the words to pray for our sons, our nieces and nephews, and the neighborhood children. Having the scriptures and the prayers written out helps give us a starting point and makes it less intimidating to think about what to pray. As we read them, it spurs more thoughts about what we can be praying. Several years ago we had considered adopting a MN Waiting child and God made it clear at that time that we were not supposed to proceed, so it helps us to know we can be doing something to help these children and their families. It has reminded us of the power of prayer and the importance of prayer. It sets the tone for the day to trust God with everything (past, present, and future). Praying helps get our perspective right for the day. Thanks for the opportunity to do this! "
We have had many foster kids in our placement and have seen them move on in different ways. We have had them be returned to their parents or other family members when we, as foster parents, felt it was too early or not the right decision for the child. Unfortunately as foster parents whose job is to get to know the child best, our voices and concerns are seldom heard. It is very hard to see a child leave when we feel they are leaving too soon or for the wrong reasons. The only thing that keeps us going is when we are able to see a child start to really heal and return home or move to a family member that we just know they will be able to continue to heal and thrive with. This just happened with our foster child.
Our prayer request was that she be able to form a bond with the family member she barley knew but looked like they would be getting custody. With this project, and I believe her sponsor's prayers, God has answered this request. Not only did our foster child form a bond with her Aunt but we did as well. There were some hurdles with the Aunt getting custody and also with transporting the child to her. She lives 6 hours away. But, with prayer and faith we were able to work together and on our own without County assistance (who would have been the ones to facilitate everything) we were able to get her moved the afternoon before the state placed their stay at home order! The only thing that makes sense with being able to overcome the hurdles like we did was Praise Jesus!
Our foster child, while with us, struggled emotionally with everything that has happened to her. Very hard struggles that required extreme measures from outside help to get her through. Now, being with her Aunt, knowing she will be with her forever, and being able to build a bond of trust; she IS THRIVING! Sure she has her days but nothing they have not been able to work through together.
I have been fortunate enough to be able to keep in contact with our foster child which is very rare for foster care. We have been face timing and she is just glowing and smiling the whole time. As much as I miss her I know she is right where God wants her to be. She has an opportunity to have an amazing life and not become a statistic!
This happy ending for us and wonderful beginning for our foster child was only possible by one reason: the power of prayer! For the person who has been praying for her…..we can't thank you enough and God Bless You!
