There’s nothing more heart wrenching than not being able to have children of your own. I know. My wife and I struggled with infertility, and that’s why we adopted. But if fostering or adoption isn’t God’s calling on your life, perhaps He’s calling you to be a mentor. You don’t know how many stories I’ve heard about kids who grew up with a mentor who wasn’t just a trusted adult friend, but were described as a second mom or dad. While this is not a substitute for parenthood, it certainly can be an amazing mission for you and your spouse. How’s the best way to get connected? Connect with your church leaders, reach out to groups like Kids Hope USA, or other similar groups. You might be someone’s answer to prayer.
