This past Friday, after almost 8 months, we said goodbye to our precious boys. We sent them off with a million kisses, hugs, so much love, and placed them in the arms of their Daddy who has waited so long to bring them home. This is the greatest moment of rejoicing and pain in foster care. Rejoicing for the restoration of a family, and sadness for what we lost. But through both of those things we find so much joy in knowing God has ordained every step, and in the end they are His. We would appreciate your prayers for the boys and their Daddy most of all. And we would love your prayers for our family. For our girls especially, because saying goodbye to these little boys who had become their brothers was difficult for them. We knew this day would come, and we are in no way surprised. But I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss them so much it hurts. They were my boys. I knew it would though, and I am thankful for it. It means we did all we could to love them, nurture them, and give them the family they needed for a season. I have to say thank you, to so many of you. Who loved them, held them at birthday parties, watched them for us so we could have a break, taught them about Jesus, came and sat with me when I felt so overwhelmed, prayed for us, and for the value and worth you showed them at every encounter. God is so good. Don’t let fear keep you from being obedient to God. Choose to say yes to more things that scare you to death. You may just experience the greatest joy. I know we did. #fostercare

Some days it’s hard to imagine life without these two playing together. ☺️ I know the day will come when we have to say goodbye... but for today, we’re just going to enjoy how perfect life is in this very moment. 💙💚#thisisfostercare #thewellsfoster #bethevoice #hesworthit #fostercare

This precious little love, Baby A (not to be confused with the previous Baby A), was placed with us today out of the blue and for an unknown amount of time. I’m already in love with her. #baby #babygirl #fostercare #fosterfamily #fosterlove #lovethemlikeyourown

It was frustrating.
It would take 100 “No’s” before getting a single “Yes.” But, there was no other way around it.
Embracing rejection was the only way. Giving up on her dream was not 🙌
Not for a girl from Long Island, NY.
Not for a girl who wanted to be on 📺 since the age of 3.
Not for a girl who worked on Broadway at the age of 9.
But, as most of us know, things often get worse, before they get better😱
For Jenna Ushkowitz (@jennaushkowitz), it was not any different.
Roles were limited due to stereotypes. Money was tight. Becoming an actress was a mystery.
As some things were getting worse, others were getting better.
The entertainment industry 🎤🎬 shifted. It became more diverse. This time, favoring Jenna😊
Even with this new wave of excitement and opportunities, there were still challenges to overcome.
I asked, “What does it take to succeed in this business?”
She replied, “This business is about timing, luck, and talent.”
Three factors that get to determine whether you’ll make it or not.
A devastating thought for most of us to imagine.
I asked, “How do you maintain your focus with so much pressure?”
She replied, “You must keep perseverance and passion for doing what you do.”

Thanks to Andrea (right) and everyone at One Church Wheaton for assembling, decorating and donating 20 sweetcases so that the children in our #fostercare programs feel special and have a place to put their personal items.

"So take courage my heart, stay steadfast my soul....he's in the waiting. "

Throughout this journey, there has been a lot of waiting. And waiting on something that might not happen is hard you guys. I found myself praying for patience and peace that surpasses understanding.
But I am reminded that God is there in the waiting. He is using me while I wait. His timing is so much better than we could ever fathom, and when surrender comes.....he moves mountains.
Today, we wait no more.

Cleaning out the comic room to make way for a toddler bed. Sad to see them find a new home but supper happy with the progress we are slowly making. #fostercare #fostertoadopt #fosters #foster #daddy #dads #fosterdads

I would not have believed it without seeing it myself but they really will #pottytrain themselves...just give them a potty.

My view this morning. I wouldn’t change a thing. We may have broken days and heartache, and these little ones have all experienced more tragedy in their short lives, but we serve a good God who can redeem each day. #3twoandunder #fostercare #fostertoadopt #adventureswitholive #godisgood #grateful #newmornings
