Good stories and the characters who write them...

Good stories include characters full of life, full of depth and full of surprises. We'd like to introduce you to some of the people who have allowed for a plot twist in their own stories when foster care ministry became a part of their lives.

You'll meet a variety of characters. Parents who learned how much they could love a child. A grandma whose starring role seems simple but is a huge help to foster families. The co-founder of FaithBridge and how the organization was shaped when his story collided with former foster child Rick Jackson. And all kinds of children from all kinds of places who are loved and cared for by FaithBridge families.

We encourage you to enter the story, especially if you are prayerfully considering to participate in foster care ministry. These stories, these characters and these unexpected joys can't help but extend the invitation for you to write your own story with foster care ministry woven into the tapestry.
