About

Grafting In is the story of a husband and wife called by the Lord to ministry through foster care. This is a documentation of our journey, told through the husband’s point of view. The blog began with our official acceptance into our county’s foster training program and will continue as long and as far as the journey will lead.

Our desire is to share our journey not only to our friends, but also to those who may be called into foster care and to encourage those who are on their own foster care journey. We promise to share the good, the bad and the ugly and maybe the humorous, fustrating and sometimes an off-topic post.

In order for the blog to be a success, we must remain anonymous, due to the privacy restrictions that our family, especially our children deserve. If you happen to know us personally, please help preserve this privacy, so that we may continue to share about our journey.

  1. Hi! My husband and I are also just entering the system, convinced that such has been the Lord calling us to it. Our walk has already been a long one, and we don’t even have our license yet. Yesterday I heard they would be finishing it up in about 3 weeks.
    In any way, we also have a blog where I would like to add yours on our blogroll, if you would like. Foster parents sharing encouragement in the Lord is down precious and vital. Blessings!

    We are so thrilled that you gave us your blog site! We will definitely be praying for you and for the child who is soon to come into your care (and hearts)! You are both such awesome people and we know that with the Lord’s guidance, you will be awesome parents, too. We are so excited for you both. Know that we are in prayer with you!

    I would like to share your blog on our blog. Would that be ok? We talk about foster care and I know that your blog could help our readers who are considering foster care. Thanks for being so honest and real. God will use you for His good and I know that you will be blessed by all the children who come into your home. Be strong! It isn’t easy when the children you come to love and care for have to leave but your home will be a blessing to them during their journey through this life.

    I don’t know what state you live in but I am sure that the system is pretty much the same throughout the US. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. We were foster parents for such a short time but we had more children then most foster parents do in years of having their home open. We had many situations and we have learned so much and have helped many families after we stopped fostering. One of the biggest gifts God provided us during our time as foster parents was providing another Godly family who had been fostering for years. They are now our dearest friends and were such a huge help when things got tough or we just didn’t understand why things were happening the way they were.

    God bless you all!!!!!

      Yes! We’d be honored. Thank you so much. We are trying to keep ourselves fairly anonymous so I’m not posting the state or any easily identifiable information. Well, I’m going to try not to. Please share any advice as you’d like, we’re open!

      Thank you again.
