There are great rewards that come along with being a foster parent, yet there are also great challenges that can leave you feeling depleted, alone, and discouraged. The many burdens of a foster parent’s day—struggling children, difficult biological parents, and a broken system—are only compounded by the many burdens of a foster parent’s heart—confusion, anxiety, heartache, anger, and fear.
With the compassion and insight of a fellow foster parent, Jamie C. Finn helps you see your struggles through the lens of the gospel, bringing biblical truths to bear on your unique everyday realities. In these short, easy-to-read chapters, you’ll find honest, personal stories and practical lessons that provide encouragement and direction from God’s Word as you walk the journey of foster parenting.
