After raising five biological children, David and Yvette were heartbroken when they learned of three young siblings who were in dire need of a foster home. They wanted to give these kids a real familyâ€™s love. But food was a big factor. Their ...
- [Narrator] Four yearsago, the Sproul family
took in three children,when two of their five
biological children werestill living at home.
- They came here froma very rough background
in a house where there wasdrug and alcohol abuse.
They didn't know when the next
meal would come or what they would have.
- When they first came,the two little ones
would go sneak downstairs,and I'd find them
night after night sitting on the floor
in the kitchen sharingfood with each other.
- [Narrator] At the time, the Sprouls
were volunteering with Operation
Blessing partner Bread of Life.
So, when Child ProtectiveServices asked if
they could handlefostering three siblings,
they said yes becausethey knew we could help.
- We didn't have anything ready for this,
didn't have time to prepare.
- We were receiving diapers, and
baby wipes, and baby formula.
Those are a huge chunk of the financial
strain on a family with young children.
- [Narrator] When the children
became available for adoption,
the Sprouls jumped at the chance
to give them a forever family.
- There's absolutely no way we would've
been able to make thatdecision had it not been for
Operation Blessing and Bread of Life.
- For them to grow up and not know
where the next meal is coming from to
now where they can come in and
the refrigerator'sthere, the food's there.
They don't have toworry about those things
and they have everything they need.
They can focus their attentions
on just developing and growing
and being what God has called them to be,
rather than just trying to survive.
- To see them here, see them happy
and completely loved, it's really awesome.
- [Narrator] Now, Yvettevolunteers with her daughters.
- What an incredible network that
God has set up, that we can
have the Operation Blessing truck pull
into our parking lot here in Pennsylvania,
and open those doors, and know
that God is providing for our community.
We've seen it happen in our own lives,
we've seen it happen inour children's lives.
- Never underestimate what you give.
There's people that probably gave
all over this country that had no idea
who we were, but it blessed a
three year old, a fiveyear old, a seven year old.
It gave them peace, it gave them comfort.
You can't outgive God, and He's
going to be faithful whensupplying your needs as well.
