I admire people who decide to do foster care for the right reasons. Imagine not having a family.

“Being a foster parent is hard. Being a foster child is harder.” -Angels Foster Agency - "My wife and I are currently in the process of becoming foster/adoptive parents. And through the training and subsequent research into foster care, we were inspired to make a short film. We called it ReMoved. (You can watch it here; it's only 13 minutes):"
This video gives an honest glimpse into the life of a foster child and a foster parent. The majority of our camper are from the foster care system.
Removed: a short film. Gives insight on child abuse and the foster care system. Excellent short.a must watch to truly understand the way these children feel you may cry.
ReMoved - a short, but powerful documentary depicting the importance of foster parents and the foster care system
We made ReMoved with the desire that it would be used to serve in bringing awareness, encourage, and be useful in foster parent training, and raising up foster parents. . Originally created for the 168 Film Festival, ReMoved follows the emotional story through the eyes of a young girl taken from her home and placed into foster care.
Watch before becoming a foster parent. Truth. A powerful look at the foster care experience through the eyes of a child >>> “ReMoved” – An Incredible film by Nathanael Matanick
I watched this awhile ago and it really is the reason why I ant to become a foster parent someday. Removed: a short film. Gives insight on child abuse and the foster care system. Excellent short.

ReMoved. You can alternatively view this film here: http://youtu.be/lOeQUwdAjE0 We made ReMoved with the desire that it would be used to serve in bringing awareness, encourage, and be useful in foster parent training, and raising up foster parents. . If you would like to use the film for any of these reasons, the answer is yes. If you need a downloadable version, you can download it here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/removed Download the music here: http://dannyklaver.bandcamp.com/releases Originally created for the 168 Film Festival, ReMoved follows the emotional story through the eyes of a young girl taken from her home and placed into foster care. After winning Best Film and Audience Choice at the 168 Film Festival, as well as winning Best Film at the Enfoque Film Festival and being an official selection at the Santa Barbara Independent Film Festival, we're extremely excited to share ReMoved online. "It would be impossible to fully understand the life and emotions of a child going through the foster care system, but this short narrative film portrays that saga in a poetic light, with brushes of fear, anger, sadness, and a tiny bit of hope." -Santa Barbara Independent This short film wouldn't be possible without the help of an incredible group of people who donated their time and energy to this project. And then of course Tony Cruz. I asked him early on if he’d be willing to tackle this with me. I wasn’t sure if I was really going to pursue it unless he said yes. He graciously agreed and was, to me, a huge source of confidence in knowing this project would turn out well. He and i discussed everything during the pre-production, and i counted on his creative mind to keep me on the right path. He even persuaded another key creative on the project, Greg Pickard, to join us. On Set Tony was my right hand man. On set, if I just wasn’t feeling it, I had the trust in him to be able to just hand the scene off to him and know he would make it work. And he stepped in plenty of times when i just needed a break, or a separate perspective. Some of the best moments in the film are of his doing. Go check him out at www.tonycruz.co We were very fortunate with Abby White, the young actress. Without her we wouldn’t have a film. Her parents were so amazing as well. I don’t think they anticipated how much involvement it would take on their end, but they stuck with it the whole way. Abby’s dad, Andy White from Good Times Guitar, even recorded Abby’s Voice Over for us in his studio. We also owe a huge thanks to Sabrina Culver, the birth mom, who brought so much to her role. Please be sure to check out her credits here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0191747/ We can vouch for her. She's worth working with!

Foster/Adopt was our first choice for growing our family! Although I honor all the reasons people choose to adopt, I constantly deal with people's default assumption of us “not being able to have our own”. This website is a super resource-- no matter what your reason for considering adoption is!

It's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for the weekly Five for Friday! Let's get started! This week was the first week back at school. In Korea, their school year is opposite, starting in March. There was no class schedule. Literally. NO schedule. You would think that they would spend the time BEFORE school started to get everything ready. Right? At least that's what happens in the states. In Korea, the first couple of weeks are spent getting schedules ready. It makes no sense to me. At all. So I spent another week desk warming, with the exception of talking to my students for 5-10 minutes in each class. We have quite a few new students at our school, so I was excited to meet them. The weather got a little warmer in Daejeon, and then it got cold again. Darn! I was SO ready for spring! Here is my little neck of the woods on the other side of the globe. School started back this week which means school lunches started back. I had decided to start making a PB&J sandwich every day for lunch...just in case. Boy, am I glad I did because lunch was nasty 4 out of 5 days this week! I'm going to start doing this every day! Fashion in Korea is rather interesting. Check out the dress I found yesterday! What do you think? Should I get it? All I know that if I wore this, I would feel like growling and snarling. Roar! And now for my BIG news! It is BIG. Boy, is it big. I announced it to the world (aka Facebook) this week that my life will be changing dramatically when I come home in August. God has called me to become a foster mom. There is absolutely no denying it. So when I come home in August, I will start the training classes and will hopefully have a child or children in my house within a couple of months of coming home. I am nervous, scared, and excited all at the same time. Becoming a single foster parent will be challenging, but I know I'm up to the challenge. I have been a foster parent for dogs for a while now, and I truly feel like God has been preparing me for this for a long time. I would appreciate your prayers! Mind-boggling, isn't it?
Love makes a family. #adoption
