I am very thankful for the training we are receiving and from the conference we attended in DC by Show Hope called The Empowered to Connect Conference. Little by little we are growing our tool belt of knowledge and resources to care for kids from hard places. My moms group at church will be using the Bible study that goes along with the book The Connected Child by Karen Purvis. What I'm trying to say is that we are not alone. We have others who stand shoulder to shoulder with us in this, praying, babysitting, listening and learning. Granted this has already felt daunting. The information is overwhelming and the task just a bit scary, but...
"The helpless entrusts himself to You; You are a helper of the fatherless.
Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their hearts.
You will listen carefully
doing justice for the fatherless and the oppressed
so that men of the earth may terrify them no more."
Please pray for us and our family as we prepare to open our home to more children in 2015.
