Why Don’t You Do Something

Jennifer Maitland GREENVILLE, South Carolina

I am a single mom with two adopted daughters and thought we were set as a family.  But I felt a real conviction when I heard the words that were "why don't you do something" as a request to God.  Why are there are children in foster care, neglected, and unloved.  I started the process of foster care, hoping God would send a child our family could show love.  Well before the process had gotten started I found myself offering to take in three beautiful little children.  They are siblings and needed a permanent home, where they could know they were going to stay forever.  They have been living with us for seven months and the process of adoption is underway.
