We are holding delicate, important space right now as foster parents, and I am convinced now more than ever that you cannot and should not go down this path hoping or planning to keep a child with you forever, at any cost. You go down this path to hold space. You cannot hold this space if you are trying to rush through or close this chapter simply because the tension is uncomfortable. Unbearable sometimes. We have to hold this space. We hold space for kids. We hold space for moms. We hold space for families. Regardless of the past. Regardless of the future. Regardless of what permanency should or will look like. We hold this space, with love and with hope. 🌿💗🌿 #loveisbrave
Sometimes being a child welfare worker looks like this...sitting in the parking lot of Walmart crying before the first day of the week is even over. Needing to pull yourself together and push down the thoughts of that kiddo you just couldn't reach today. Because you can't forget about it and you feel so defeated and heartbroken that someone so young already believes the lies that they are not valuable. It's hard to run yourself in to grab work supplies when you feel that weight on your shoulders and the release of the tears feels like such a better option.

💖Sweet ELLIOT is 7 and he lived in a home where there were a bunch of dogs who didn't get enough love and attention. He is so special and he needs some help now. Please SHARE for his life, he's SUCH a good boy and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. Thanks!💖

Her eyes say so much in this photo 😍. Sonya has probably never felt this loved or safe in her entire life. She clearly loves her foster dad and this girl has really come a long way in her 4 months with him. Sonya went from being redzone dog aggressive to fully hanging out with the other 2 Dogos!!! Simply amazing. She's probably 8 years old and having some health issues now but we are hoping to get some answers soon.
Bonnie is still living in my office and is now the most amazing cat. She is still looking for her forever home! 🏡 Bonnie enjoys bum scratches, the laser pointer, and cannot resist temptations! She went from fearful and sad, to confident and happy ☺️ She is perfect!! #ADOPTME#KAMLOOPS
Full story video Link in bio ⬆️⬆️⬆️ Well if you missed it yesterday in all the busyness. Here's another reminder that we posted Nadine Roos's full video story and what a story it was. If you missed it, you can check it out now on our Website at www.fightforthefatherless.org on facebook in the video section or on Youtube.
This is just the first of two short clips, with another one we may post on a different day, highlighting some of the messages that Nadine shared with you guys and if you’ve not seen the full video, she had so many powerful messages and great things to say that we wouldn’t know where to begin in mentioning them all here.
We’re continually grateful for all the amazing people that God is connecting with our family and continually amazed at their stories but most importantly we’re thankful that they all have a passion to help you guys and to be there to encourage and cheer you on through what we do. ————————————————————
We love that they all continually echo the same message and belief that you are special. We know though that we can only ever do and say so much to get you to were you need to be, the rest is up to you. ————————————————————
What we can say is that, we will always do our best to make sure we are all on the same page in believing the very best for you and asking God to give us the ability to show his love and passion for you all through us and through everything we aim to do as a family.
If anyone has the below rabbit (Esther) PLEASE PLEASE contact the page here or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Esther was sold on craigslist without our permission from her adopter. We just discovered this after we were working on some behavioral issues with the adopter. Rather than return her which it's in our contract we will, she sold her on craigslist in Rochester, NY. IF you have her we just want to know she's ok and if you are ok. The ad has false information she is not tolerant of cats.
