Our James 1:27 Fund

For the past year and a half, Dallas and I have been serving as group home parents to 13 incredible foster children. Committing to this role required both Dallas and I to quit our jobs and graduate school to be able to give 100% of ourselves to this opportunity. As our commitment is coming to an end, we are beginning to shift our attention towards life after the group home. We are hopeful that many of the children we’ve cared for will soon be reunited with family members.

Two of the girls, however, need a family and Dallas and I feel called to fill that need. Because of the nature of the foster care system, this is a messy and frustrating process and one that has a timeline that must be met. Earlier this year, we purchased a fixer-upper home and on our days off, have been working to make it habitable.

In order to have our home approved by the county, we need to add two more bedrooms. This needs to happen quickly and we need $25,000 in order to finish these home additions to code.

We know God is in the business of placing the lonely in families. We also know that He loves to invite us to partner with Him in His work. Would you please pray about donating to our building fund? We are humbled by and grateful for your consideration.

Please do not share this go fund me page on Facebook. As we begin to transition out of our role at the group home, we need to be very careful about what information is made public. We need to keep this announcement between friends and family.
