the long, unchartered road...


we begin a journey today that we have been on before, but will look completely different this time.  we are different.  the system is different.  the children are different.  the journey is foster care.  there are so many challenges and cracks in this system and honestly, i don't want to invite that into my life again.  but, i can't get away from the truth of these are the orphans in my neighborhood that Christ talked so much about.  these are truly the least of these in the country that i live.  i can't escape this and so i take the first step with every part of me trembling.  but then i look at noah.  oh how tragic had i let fear keep me from him.  i must walk ahead.  would you join us in this journey?
