God said, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphans and the widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” –James 1:27 (NIV)

Our foster parents come in a variety of seasons of life: single parents, parents who work part-time and full-time, parents with and without biological children and empty nesters. All of our foster parents have one thing in common: they love our children. Everyone is valuable and has something to offer our children.

On any given day in Tennessee, over six-thousand children are in foster care with more than three-hundred children available for adoption. In Virginia, over five-thousand children are in foster care with more than seven-hundred available for adoption. Would you use your time, gifts and talents to serve these children?
