National FC Month (Tip #5)

May is National Foster Care Month and we thought we’d share 10 ways in 10 days you can support kids in care without becoming a foster parent.

Tip #5. Become a prayer warrior for a foster family

Commit to praying for a foster family on a regular basis. While confidentiality may require the family to be vague with requests, find out important dates that are coming up or specific situation that may need prayer. Fostering can be hard on everyone. Kids are adjusting to a new home with uncertainty of what the future will hold. Biological and adopted kids already in the home may have difficulty accepting the new child or sharing their home and family. Foster parents may find a strain on their marriage as they learn to parent a child from a hard place who often has so many needs. Call, text, or email regularly to see how you can pray.
