Happy #ForeverFamilyFriday y’all. Did you know that May is foster care awareness month? I know we are just a few days into May but I hope that you will take a moment at some point this month to use your voice and your platform to bring awareness to the 400,000 plus kids in the foster care system. There have been millions of kids over the years that have been affected by our flawed and struggling foster care system and we have an opportunity this month to try to do something to make a difference in the lives of those vulnerable kids. I’m so thankful for each and everyone of you that are reading this and are journeying along with me each Friday. I understand that many of you can’t adopt, but as I have said before, there is so much that you can do to be a part of making a difference in the lives of kids in foster care. Something as simple as cooking a meal for a foster care family or send them a note of encouragement, or plan an activity for kids in foster care. We can serve them, support them, and help care for them, even if we cannot adopt. Here is a young man that is worth supporting, serving and caring for.
Please allow me to introduce you to Qwinshon from Georgia. He is 16 years old and is helpful and passionate. He enjoys animals, swimming, and drawing. In school, where he gets good grades, his favorite subject is English Language Arts. After he graduates from high school he plans on attending technical school and ultimately owning his own business – some new type of technology! That’s so awesome! Qwinshon is loving and likes taking care of the elderly, and helping people with things. He is proud of himself for being loving, caring and thankful.
Qwinshon said his greatest wish is to have the best family which would include simply spending time and seeing that they love him. Oh my heart. He needs a loving family who will give him the attention, support, encouragement, structure and nurturing environment to continue to thrive and achieve his goals. Can you be that family for Qwinshon?
