My Special Pajama Time with God!
When you step up to be a foster parent, you’re making that commitment that you’re the one that’s going to be there when they have nightmares in the middle of the night. You’re the one that’s going to be there to rush them to the emergency room when they have an accident or injury. You’re the one that’s going to be there to calm them when their world’s turning upside down. You’re the one that minor emergency knows by name, because your kids are the most accident prone. They’re the ones that get sick first, get infections first. They’re the ones that you wear your heart on your sleeve for. Because you realize and they realize that they have no one else to depend on so you push yourself a little harder to be the parent that they deserve you to be…Because it’s your calling! One that pushes you farther and deeper than you’ve ever been before! You’re not doing it for yourself. You’re doing it for them, and the Kingdom of God. Because you’re a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ, and because no matter how crazy your life gets, you wouldn’t have it any other way!
