I love hope. Love people who are hopeful. Love stories that have a happy ending. I want the guy to get the girl. The dog to find its owner. The foster kid to return home. The orphan to get a family. And for all of them to live happily ever after.
Hope requires action.
Action causes a perfectly comfortable family to open their door to foster kids. Action moves a couple from hoping for a child to adopting a child. Action moves a person to tutor or mentor or write the check or organize the party or the event, so that foster kids can have a shot at a better future than past. Hope requires action.
If you are in the mood for some action and live in the Oklahoma City area, take a look at www.fluxokc.wordpress.com or follow @fluxokc on twitter. You can be part of celebrating the graduation of a foster kid. If you are outside of OKC, call your local DHS/DCFS office and see if they need help throwing a party for their graduates. Only 3 out of 5 foster kids make it through high school – we should make a big deal out of it!
