Each of us has a part to play in the redemption stories of the families around us. The reality is that while most people are willing to recognize the importance of wrapping around an adoptive or fostering family, very few take time to take action.
Consider the practical gifts you could offer.
If you are an electrician or plumber, could you offer 1-2 jobs per quarter to a family? If you do skin or hair care, could you donate a service or product once a month? If you are a business professional, could your company “adopt” a family to help supply for a practical need (like a new washer and dryer) once a quarter? If you are an organized person, could you volunteer once a month to clean at an adoptive families home? Enjoy mowing or yard work? Want to volunteer to pray for a family during your devotional time?
