Foster Parenting - To Do or Not To Do.

We are thinking about becoming foster parents and we need your help. We will be attending an all day class on foster parenting through the County Welfare office here in Bend on November 3rd and we could really use your prayers to help us decide whether this is something we can do. If you have any words of wisdom or encouragement, please e-mail us as we are both feeling led to make this step, but we also have a lot of fears we need to work through first. We have only committed to attending the meeting and we will decide from there whether we want to proceed through the training process or not. This is a big decision and we can not go into it without considering all of the consequences thoroughly. Thank you for your prayers and please don't hesitate to e-mail us your thoughts as we really need a lot of counsel to make this decision. All our love - The Benningtons


  1. ill be praying for you guys-
    thats awesome, that you guys are considering it! do have an idea of the age range you would like?

  2. Hi Robert & Holly,

    I think you guys would do well with anything you set you out to do! You are two loving people who care deeply for the needs of others, and I think this would be just one more way to exercise God's talent he's given you. Laura and I will be praying for your decision.
