Fostering Hope hosts monthly support group meetings where foster and adoptive families come to find community, support, connection, and encouragement. There are two separate groups, one dedicated to foster families and the other to adoptive families. On occasion, we have a guest speaker or provide a specialized training session during our meeting time. 

The meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm in the ROC Building. The foster group meets in Room 304, and the adoptive group meets in 302. Childcare is available, and a reservation is required. To learn more about how to get involved, email fosteringhope@fruitcove.com. 

Whether you are fostering or have adopted or considering how God would use you to serve vulnerable children, come join us as we help each other on the fostering/adoption journey. You will be amazed at how God will use your story to bless others and how their stories will bless you!

 


On Tuesday, February 7, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, instead of our regular support group meeting, we are hosting a special event called Unseen.  

Unseen will be an evening of encouragement and remembrance for foster and adoptive children and families. We recognize that all foster and adoptive children and families all experience loss, whether it’s the loss of a birth family or a change in placement. We want to encourage you, the unseen work you do to help navigate your children through some of their hardest days, and have a special time of recognition and prayer.

For this special night, we will gather outside at the Pavilion. Dessert and coffee will be served, and we will be joined by members of our counseling ministry, The Cove, who will share a message of encouragement and hope. Our prayer ministry will also join us and spend time praying over your family and the children you have served. 

We will recognize children that are currently or have been placed in your home for a short or long period of time through foster care, as well as those that have been adopted. Please include the first names of the children you would like to be recognized in the registration. Names will be included in a prayer led by our prayer ministry and on a luminary displayed at the event.

Childcare is available but limited. Childcare is for babies through fifth grade. Registration for childcare is required and a “Getting to Know Me” form must be submitted or on file for each child attending childcare. Register for childcare using the link at the end of the event registration. You will also find a link to the Getting to Know Me form at the end of the registration.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help support you and your family. We are here for you!
