    One thought on “Faith & Foster Care: How We Impact God's Kingdom”

    1. This was a great book to read when our second placement (1st long-term placement) left. I needed hope that we had made a difference, even if only for a short time. I needed advice about the grieving process and to know my feelings were normal. This book provided that. It isn’t full of parenting advice or the author’s personal stories (some, but that isn’t the main part of the book); it’s more a book with scripture and thoughts about the emotional aspects of being a foster parent. It’s [...]

    2. I especially felt the chapter on when your foster child leaves was especially helpful. It went through the stages of grief and related it to foster care. It also encourages you to rely on God in the times. It gave suggestions of ways to handle this loss in a productive way such as join or starting a support group.

    3. One of my favorite books to read on foster care if you are thinking about fostering and even if you are already a foster parent.

    4. As someone who is interested in doing some form of Foster Care someday (whether it be respite, full time foster care, or fostering to adopt) I really found this book helpful. The advice and stories in it from actual foster parents and kids were eye opening. I also really appreciated all of the relevant scriptures throughout. The only downside of this book in my opinion was how much different the experience of the author is than what my own personal experience would be because he and his wife had [...]

    5. What I liked about this book was that it so closely intertwined two of my passions: fostering and faith. Dr. DeGarmo's message was clear - we are called to foster or support those who do. And his use of Scripture and anecdotes from actual foster families solidified his points. However, it wasn't always as compelling as I hoped. Perhaps more practical strategies or more Biblical commentary would have helped.

    6. If you are a foster parent, considering becoming a foster parent or wanting to learn more about this calling, this book is super!!! From specific prayers to real life stories to many specific scriptures, this book was an amazing tool to read. We are about to have our first foster baby leave our home and his chapter on grieving that loss was perfect for me!! I can't wait to read other books by him!!!
