“A few years ago, I spontaneously went to the CAFO Summit. For the first time, I heard about caring for vulnerable children as a ministry of the Church. After coming home and fasting and praying about how God wanted me to respond, He clearly told me, “Support adoptive families.” Later, when we were introduced to Foster the Bay and their model of supporting foster families, we knew right away we wanted to be involved somehow. This movement captures the essence of the Gospel and what the Church should be! We’re glad to be a part of Foster the Bay!”
