Altruism

It’s important to remember that most Foster children may come from severely troubled or needy backgrounds. But, if you look closely into rough, sometimes rebellious eyes, you will find a child that is in sore need of love. And maybe yours could be the only means to break through the ice.

There can be no other joy greater than seeing a child bloom into maturity as a responsible, well-adjusted individual. A good family, and family life, is integral to that growth. Opening up your home to these children could be the breakthrough in their lives as your providing of a stable home can open the avenues that offer these children a second chance.

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.
