The Journey

Our paths are littered and stained with tears cried out inside a thousand nights, the lasting imprints of our courageous walk forward into the unknown.

The Foster Care journey is one so challenging that few can even comprehend it. Our roads are ever changing and we seem to have no map to follow. We are called to place our feet upon a road that requires us to constantly change while making choices based only on the obligation our hearts demand.

Look back at the path behind you and seek out what you have learned. From that knowledge you can now draw the courage it will take for you to keep on going. You did not give up. You reached within yourself and then reached out, you accepted, and you chose the directions that have in fact created the very person you are now.

If you are on your knees … you are growing taller.
If you are crying … you are getting stronger.
If you are choosing this challenge … you have already won.


About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
