We were honored to attend an adoption celebration over the weekend as "guests of honor" along with many other families from our state who have adopted from the foster care system within the last few years. They quite literally rolled out the red carpet for the event and had "paparazzi" on site taking pictures of each family as they arrived.
Danielle Gletow founder of One Simple Wish was the guest speaker for the day. One forever family was selected by random drawing (not ours) to receive a $500.00 wish for their family from One Simple Wish. The new #iFitIn campaign hosted by the foundation serves as an effort to get people more involved and to find their place in foster care. Whether you donate time, money, foster or adopt, there can be a place for you. Let people know how you fit in and encourage them to join in too.
Our family has been so blessed through serving children in foster care. I encourage you to find your own place, and do something to make a difference in the life of a foster child.
God is good, all the time!
