Have Faith and Hear the Call: A Foster Parent's Story

My grandfather was a Pentecostal preacher and my grandmother was his life helper. They were houseparents in an orphanage in Wewoka when I was little, and they also had a foster child, Herman, when my dad was in college. Herman needed a place to live when his parents couldnt take care of him, so my grandparents took him in and became his family. So, foster care wasnt new to me. When we moved to OKC in 2004, I met a fantastic family, the Phillips. I watched them begin their foster care journey. The Lord began to move in me, letting me know this is something he was calling us to do.

The AHF Journal: Scott Teel, Foster Parent

My wife and I have been foster parents for two years, and we foster one child at a time. The fostering process is complicated, frustrating, and rewarding—all at the same time. Behaviors are the most challenging experiences for us. These children are confused, hurting, and scared, so finding a way to make them feel safe and express their emotions while not hurting themselves or others is a challenge. At the end, watching them transform from scared and timid to happy and thriving is the most rewarding thing.

The AHF Journal: Elizabeth Fischborn, Volunteer

Ive been a volunteer with The Annas House Foundation since February of this year. My journey began because I had been wanting to support foster families for several years and AHF came to our church to share their ministry one morning in November, which is Foster Awareness Month. I travel a lot, but thankfully AHF works with my crazy schedule to allow me to volunteer when time allows.
