Review

Faith and Foster Care was a real shot in the arm for me as I read it and reflected on my years as a foster parent. Reading so many real-life antidotes from others who shared so many of the same experiences as my family did was validation of our work, commitment and the role our faith played in everything we did as foster parents. This is a must read book for foster parents and other caregivers. It is honest about the challenges of fostering while speaks eloquently to the blessings it is to the foster parents, the children and the birth parents of the children receiving foster care services. Job well done, Dr. DeGarmo, job well done. --Irene Clements, executive director, National Foster Parent Association

Becoming a foster parent can be a difficult, life-changing decision that many say they have been called to do by a higher power. Dr. John DeGarmo explores that calling in his newest book, Faith and Foster Care. Himself a Christian, DeGarmo shares his personal call by God to become a foster parent, along with his wife Kelly. In the book, DeGarmo not only shares his personal calling, but also shares the stories of other foster parents called to become foster parents and help children in need. Throughout the pages he weaves scripture with personal stories, identifying a number of ways God has called and continues to use foster parents to heal the wounds of children in foster care. Covering topics beyond the initial calling, DeGarmo also explores other areas of fostering, including the impact on marriage, living a life of faith, dealing with heartbreak and much more. --Kim Hansel, editor, Fostering Families Today
