The vision of the Louisiana Baptist Foster & Adoption Network is to connect all Louisiana foster children to Christian families and churches and to minister to orphans worldwide.
Beth worked in the state foster care system for more than 19 years and has two nephews adopted through the state foster care system.
She has seen both professionally and personally the positive impact that Christian foster families have on the lives of vulnerable children.
“Not only are children safe and cared for in a physical sense, but children placed in Christian homes can experience the unconditional love of Christ that will make an eternal difference in their lives,” Green said.
A concern that Beth often hears from families considering foster parenting is their fear of becoming too attached to the children because many foster children eventually return home.
“While it is true that families have a hard time when the children leave, they realize that they have provided the child with a safe and secure home and the love of God,” Green said. “The experience of most families is that God provides the strength to say goodbye if that time comes.”
