80%

That’s my explanation for the title of this website.  80% of foster children are reunited with their families.  That is a miracle!  I had no idea.  So, “bringing our children home” is my message that the main goal is to get these precious children home with their birth parents or blood relatives.  It’s good to know that we will be preparing them to return home.  That is our charge.

We bring them into our home… then we bring them back home.  80% of the time.

Of course the other 20% will be adopted.  And that is a miracle too!  Several people coming together with love for a child.  I have 2 adopted brothers.  Believe me, many many people bonded in love to create a family for my brothers.  (not just 2 horny newlyweds!)  We are all born from our Heavenly Father — but it is pretty dang remarkable to see the extra super-duper LOVE FEST that results in the blessing of adoption.

Not flesh of my flesh
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn’t grow under my heart,
But in it.
