Prospective foster parents question the impact fostering will have on their biological children. According to Emily Nienhuis—it changes lives for generations.
Emily grew up with her parents fostering. She even has adopted siblings. So it wasn’t surprising she became a foster parent herself. What may raise your eyebrows—Emily started fostering as a single twenty-three year old.
With a background in nursing Emily fostered medically fragile babies. Along the way, she adopted six baby girls. Today, Emily is still a single parent. She’s also the director of One Heart Family Ministries. One Heart recruits, trains, and supports Christian foster families in Missouri.
