Why I hate being a foster parent (and why we will do it again)

By Peter Greer
Nothing has broken my heart quite like becoming a foster parent. This weekend, we said goodbye to a six-year-old little boy who loved chocolate chip pancakes, Spiderman, and cuddling with our dog. I wish you could know him- he brought giggles and smiles into our home, and he had a contagious laugh. Every day when I got home from work, he would fly across the room and leap into my arms. Pound per pound, I'm certain that he gave the biggest hugs on planet earth. For ...

Thanksgiving Conversation Cards

By Jennie Allen

And I want to give you a challenge this year as you head to bake the turkey and gather around the table with ...
