Foster Parenting

Organized by: Courtney Cooper

My name is Courtney, and my husband and I are about to become first time parents. We are a young Christian couple who feel are being called into the ministry of Foster Care. We want to be parents to a little one who has been abused, neglected, unloved. I am taking on the role of being a full time mom. A truly scary thought but one that is such a need in our world. We are excited to love like we have never loved before, and make a small impact on a child’s life for however long is needed. This is a new season filled with new dreams. And for a child– a whole new meaning of love, faith, and family.

Because I will not be working, my husband Ben and I will only be living on $2000 a month. We do get a small stipend from the State, but it is just that: small. We are asking people to do two things: come along side us in prayer. Prayer for the child, prayer for the birth mother, and prayer for us. The second think we are seeking is financial support. It is extremely hard to live on $2000 a month while raising a family. I believe we are wise with our money and living as frugally as possible. Our goal of $15,000 with get us through the year and hopefully help us to move into a bigger home with more rooms, so that we may be able to take in more children.

Prayerfully consider how much you may be able to give. Every dollar is huge blessing.

Thank you in advance,

Courtney and Ben Cooper
