So...sometimes God throws us some curve balls in life.

Over the last few days I have received three offers to attend meetings, join committees, and speak at foster care events.  Is this the ultimate path God wanted me to be on, but I needed to be a part of "the system" before I could advocate for the kiddos in it?

They are all BIG assignments but in such different ways.  All of which make me super excited.

The first is a meeting with the DIRECTOR of HHS here in our state.  How did this come about?  I think I mentioned I had met with my boss prior to him meeting with our governor to discuss the turmoil in the foster care system in our state.  It is one of my boss' passions and he was on the board of a now defunct group home.  He and I had met and he told the governor about me. we are...meeting being scheduled with the Director of HHS, my boss, and discuss foster care in our state from the my perspective.  Wow God...that is really entrusting me with A LOT.

The second opportunity I have received is to join a committee of a group called Voices for Children.  Absolutely.  Children are a large group in society yet they truly have NO VOICE.  They can't vote.  They have no say in what happens in legislature.  They can't really advocate for themselves.  I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

Finally, and the one that makes me the most nervous/excited, is speaking at a recruiting event for a local foster care agency.  Ironically it isn't even my agency, but another agency who is "aware of" me.  I will be giving a 10-15 minute discussion on foster parenting teens. have given me a lot of responsibility here.  I hope I can be an instrument for your plan for the orphan in our state.  Show me what it is that YOU want me to say.  The words YOU need people to hear so the outcome glorifies YOU.  Without YOU I would be capable of none of this.
