A Big heart

Jennie L. Hinkley ~ “I understand that it takes someone with a big heart to be a foster parent. You see, foster parents have a tough job showing an abused child who has entered the system how to love and care. They have to let children know that they can be trusted”.

“To foster parents everywhere, I’d like to say thank you for all that you do for children. You do have an impact on a child’s life. If it were not for my foster parents’ willingness to open their home and hearts to me as a child, I’m not sure where I would be today. I can only imagine that I was saved from a life of living on the streets, being on welfare, a teen parent and a high school drop-out”.

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.
