The Challenges and Rewards of Foster Care Adoption

For Cindy, the challenges that came with being a foster parent and parent were all worth it.

Denalee Chapman March 06, 2015

When Cindy got married, she got an immediate family. Her four step children gave her great joy. But Cindy always wanted a very large family, and she hoped to birth children to expand her family. But it didn’t happen.

And then it came to her, through prayer, that she needn’t worry. Only days later, they were blessed with the opportunity to foster some wonderful children. 

Adopting through foster care offers unique challenges. Cindy’s children came to her needing extra comfort, extra guidance, extra care, and extra love. But the rewards are great!

In this video Cindy shares practices that worked for her in getting the children the extra help they needed. And in the end, they are her children. And conquering the unique challenges that came with adopting through foster care has been worth it.
