Springs of Love

Welcome to Springs of Love

Join us as we share inspiring real stories of families touched by fostering and adoption, while also helping families discern and live out the call to foster and adopt. Come here to learn more about the adoption triad (birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees), as well as how to get involved with helping vulnerable children in foster care either through fostering or supporting a foster family. If you are discerning if you might be called to foster or adopt, please sign up for our free Be Not Afraid virtual retreat to receive immediate access.

Do you have a story of adoption or fostering to share? We need writers who have a passion for fostering and adopting, as well as administrative and design help. Contact us for more information. Please pray that God prospers this work of His hands. Thank you!

Radical solidarity through fostering kids, supporting families

Dr. Kimberly Henkel reflects on the meaning of “Radical Solidarity” in fostering: “When we went to the hospital after Anthony had been born, I wondered about his birth mother who had endured childbirth only to have her baby boy ripped from her arms and placed into mine. My heart ached for her. This woman who gave birth to the greatest joy of my life up to that point would return home with no baby. Yes, she had problems that made it unsafe for her to raise her child… But what would become of her?”
