On August 4th and 5th, TBHC was proud to partner with Walnut Ridge Baptist Church in Mansfield to host our first-ever conference: Fostering Success. The weekend saw 70 local foster parents from 3 different agencies come together for a refreshing time of worship, equipping, and fellowship. With trained child-care providers volunteering their time, our parents were able to enjoy a series of keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and time with one another to be reminded of why (and how) their work is endlessly impacting the foster children of the Metroplex.

I loved getting to fellowship with other foster parents! It's not often we get to see each other face-to-face and connect."

Listening to the speakers share their stories was so encouraging! I was able to connect with other parents who have similar experiences as I do too."

I loved learning new things and being reminded of the tools that we have!"

This incredible weekend would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our staff. The success of this conference is proof that the efforts of a community coming together to support those called to foster care is so necessary for our ministry to thrive.

To Philip Johnson and Sarah Vinet, who dedicated countless months of time and prayer to planning this conference- thank you!

To Walnut Ridge Baptist Church of Mansfield, who gave up their building for the weekend and offered volunteers to love on our kids that weekend- thank you!
