The unexpected story God writes

Today, Amanda Beery, Encourage foster parent, shares her family’s journey of foster care to adoption. Amanda first believed that their family would help children in need through private infant adoption, but God had other plans.

The power of connection

This summer, Encourage Foster Care offered Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) training to all of our foster families. Encourage uses the TBRI approach because connecting and belonging is central to the human heart. It is central to how we were created in God’s image.

The Ziegler Family

Brian and Susie Ziegler share about their ongoing journey with Encourage Foster Care, an inspiring story that led to them adopting their son Gage. Story #36 in our 50 Stories for 50 Years of Ministry series is one of faith and answering a Biblical call to help those in need.
