Scripture tells us religion that is pure is caring for the orphans (James 1:27). In the United States alone there are more than 400,000 children in the foster care system.* Each child is an opportunity to show God's love, to reach out to the most vulnerable and be an agent of hope. Join host Jerrad Lopes and other members of the Dad Tired community as they share their stories of becoming foster and adoptive parents. While not everyone is called to fostering or adopting, we are all called to love and to pray for one another. This weeks episode will give you a glimpse behind the curtain of what it means to take a child into your home. If God is calling you to take that step, you will benefit from the insights of fathers who have already gone through the process. If fostering or adopting is not right for you and your family, pray for those who are.
