Life In Limbo: A Foster Care Experience

The Vulnerable Children’s Ministry

Presents a Foster Care Experience
“Life in Limbo”

Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Willow Creek Community Church
67 E. Algonquin Road, So. Barrington, IL

Come out to our next VCM Gathering to engage in a unique foster care experience that will allow you to “walk a mile in their shoes.” Through this simulation experience, you will take on the role of a child in foster care, foster care parent or birth parent. You will deal with the anxiety, anger and hope that the children experience, feel the struggle a foster parent must go through to provide a stable environment or decide as a birth parent whether you will do whatever it takes to get your children back.

This simulation is dynamic and moving. It will increase your understanding of the foster care system and motivate you to get involved. Whether you are currently involved in foster care or want to walk alongside those who are, this experience is for you!

The simulation experience will be conducted by Joy DeLaere,  Section Leader at Willow Creek and Jenn Ranter, Ministry Lead for Preplanted – an adoption, foster care & Safe Families ministry at Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton.
