My name is Helen Rose and I believe so strongly in the power of our life stories. I didn't always feel this way, or understand the impact of each of our unique life stories, until again and again God opened doors for me to share mine. I saw before my eyes hearts impacted and lives changed by the love of God and the hope they heard in my story.
Growing up, I never dreamed of living the life I do today. Healed, whole, purpose-driven. Filled with vision and hope for my future. My husband Samuel and I are on a journey together growing closer to each other and closer to God as we live lives fully devoted to serving and loving children and families in crisis. Foster care played a major role in my story. Early in my life God began cultivating in me a love and passion for children and families whose lives were impacted by foster care. Crisis, addiction, tragedy, abuse, neglect, separation, broken families, loss. Every story is so different and unique, but every person I've met who has a "foster care chapter" in their stories, have been hit with deep pain, or moved with compassion to help care for those who have.
I am forever grateful that God sent a community of foster families to surround my mom, my brother and I when I was 15. The journey leading up to that season of my life was one filled with grief and confusion, and I thank God everyday He used the healing love of family to help rewrite my story.
It is my hope and prayer that through creativity, intentional outreaches and resources, that lives will be empowered and touched by Seeds of Hope.. It is my vision that every product be a seed of hope, and every outreach leave a lasting impact in the lives of children and youth shifting in and out of foster care, as I had. Their stories matter, and so does yours. Lets be brave and bold by sharing our stories of hope to those who are in the midst crisis and facing hopelessness. Lets each impact our own little corners of the world with the hope we carry in our stories.
Thank you for linking arms with me in this mission! with love, Helen Rose
