We stepped in to serve with Safe Families in 2008. It has been an interesting ride. We have met several children, bio families, workers and other host families. It is not always easy and it is sometimes messy - but, all in all - it IS worth it. We have learned to simply be faithful while trusting the ultimate outcome to God.
Right now, we are caring for an infant we affectionately call, "Baby Tony." (A nickname from his mom's best friend.) He is THE EASIEST baby I have ever met....AND he's beyond cute. Please pray for him, his mom, his two older brothers (10 & 3)...and his dad who is still involved. Most of all, we want them to know Jesus.
A little history & info on Safe Families (from their website www.safe-families.org):
Since 2005, Safe Families for Children has offered sanctuary to thousands of children, minimizing the risk for abuse or neglect and giving parents the time and tools they need to help their families thrive. The ultimate goal is to strengthen and support parents so they can become Safe Families for their own children.
Safe Families for Children strives to meet three objectives:
