“It is very encouraging to see a strong community partner like City Ministries Child Placement Agency step up to get licensed and partner with the King County and DCYF to meet this very critical need-providing safe, nurturing homes for children in crisis.”

Foster parenting has brought joy and fulfillment to our family. The children we have had in our home have blessed us and in turn I pray we have been a blessing to them. One of the most unexpected benefits of fostering has been what our children have received. They have learned to be compassionate, kind and loving to children from all walks of life. We have found that being a foster family is a way that we can be God’s hands and feet in a practical way.
Kennesha & Larry
As a respite care family, we are able to provide a reprieve to full time foster parents when they need a break. There is significant impact on the collective perspective of our entire family when we serve the community together in this way. We also find tremendous satisfaction in seeing children find a place in our family’s culture in such short periods of time.
I am blessed to be a respite care provider for the foster children, which means I have the children for a 48-hour time span once a month. My two daughters and I have hosted children as young as 9 months to 13 years of age; we’ve enjoyed some of these children only for 1 month and some for 2 years once a month. These weekends soon became the highlight of our month much like having extended family coming for an overnight visit but only better because seeing the children once per month we are witness to Jesus’ healing and transformation in these children their lives and their hope restored that Jesus has a future for them as He holds them in the palm of His hand.

It’s not always easy, but we wouldn’t trade the fostering experience for anything. Seeing growth and positive change in the children that come into our home is rewarding. Their resilience and spirit is inspiring! And as we have welcomed these kids in their time of need, our family has grown and been blessed in ways we couldn’t have anticipated.
Kate & Igor
Being aware of the need on the local scale, our family said yes to fostering. We welcomed children into our home providing them with a safe and stable environment. Just being there for them on a daily basis means the world to them. Many other foster parents would agree that fostering is a challenging journey but nevertheless a rewarding one. A foster parent’s reward can be as big as having a child move up a reading level or as simple as a hug. In our family we say that we only have good days and hard days, there are no bad days. Fostering affected us in ways we never expected. We thought that we would be the ones teaching our foster children when in reality we learn more than teach. Through fostering God is teaching us to be more patient, more forgiving and more accepting. God proved to us that when we answer His call, He is there to support and carry us through. While our primary focus is now on fostering, He provides and sends enormous blessing and prosperity in all the other aspects of our life. He is good and all glory goes to Him
