Foster Care

I am so amazed about how people open their hearts and their homes to children in foster care. Today I read a gut wrenching account from my blog friend (and UMC pastor) Andy Bryan where he recounts the gut wrenching decision to remove a little girl from their home. This paragraph from his post pretty well sums it up:
We feel pretty rotten about this whole deal, to tell you the truth. We feel like we failed. We feel angry at her parents for being really, really crappy parents. We feel relieved that she is gone from our household, and immediately feel guilty for feeling relieved. So we’re pretty mixed up right now, as you can imagine.
You can read his whole story here. Please pray for Andy and his family.. and for the little girl.. and consider leaving him an encouraging comment.
