Foster Family Testimonials

The Christian-based classes with Fostering Our Future offer an enriching experience for individuals interested in becoming foster parents. Having previously fostered for fifteen years as well as co-training traditional MAPP/Pride classes, Fostering Our Future is truly a remarkable approach.

-- The Ludwig Family

We felt so defeated in the mainstream classes and support systems until we found Fostering Our Future, Julie, Bill, and their team. The classes brought real-life situations and principles, tangible advice, and allowed us to work at our pace with weekly gatherings to connect, share, review, ask questions, and have meaningful discussions. 

-- The Griffith Family

 Fusce molestie libero at rutrum elementum. Donec ut porttitor tellus. Donec luctus lobortis tortor, porta tincidunt nisl tincidunt at. Vestibulum id turpis non dui convallis aliquet et vitae ante. Fusce molestie libero at rutrum elementum. Donec ut porttitor tellus. Donec luctus lobortis tortor, porta tincidunt nisl tincidunt at. 

-- Sandra Fae, Pastor
