A tribute to my parents

Out of 4,000 foster families in our state, 8 were chosen to stand with the first lady at our capitol and receive a reward for exceptional foster parenting.  We've only been fosters for about a year, and my parents made it happen.  A reporter from our town's newspaper came and interviewed us, and our mugs were glued to the front page today.  The thing is, I'm not a bit surprised my parents were chosen to be honored.  They are such a blessing to many, many people!  What the newspaper article left out was that they are outstanding because they strive to give God glory in all that they do.  A lot of people to make a positive difference in the world, but few people have the Son of God as their role model.
