For the better part of five decades, I have worked with Foster Parents. This group of extraordinary, unique individuals have certainly left an indelible, positive imprint on my life. I am not sure I have the skills to craft an appropriate expression of gratitude I have for those who have turned their homes and lives into sanctuaries, hospitals, safe havens, classrooms and sometimes even battlefields for our children and youth (and not without costs)... but here I go.
Many of you know that I am a person of deep faith, identifying myself as a “follower of Christ”, rather than with modern American Christianity which I believe to be substantially tainted by selfishness, greed, self-righteousness and unscriptural political views. My convictions and belief system has been the primary driver of my life for well over five decades, and has served as one of the primary influences in my creation and oversight of the Family Care Network. That being the case, I would like to share my personal Guidelines for Living.
