Having been foster parents in many states, we have gone through a lot of social workers. I always found it interesting that after knowing us only a few hours total they would write a report that would affect us forever. How do you explain to a practical stranger that," I know I have five kids under 9yrs old, but we feel called of God to do this.", and " not just one special needs child but two."
The questions like "How do you plan on homeschooling 7 children?" Isn't 7:1 a better teacher ratio than in the public schools or daycare?
Isn't it "better" to go into this completely informed and willing, than to have it be a surprise at birth and then have to figure it out?
I feel so encouraged when I read the Reece's Rainbow profiles of other families who have more kids than I do and they do adoption after adoption of these beautiful, deserving children. I have worked in orphanages before.
I know it will all be worth it when we hold our new babies. I know God will forever change us after walking through the orphanage.
Lord, forever change me....
