Notes and Quotes:
“There was a love for children right at the very beginning of our relationship.” —Vickie Bennett
“I didn’t realize that growing up being in charge of. . . little calves, that God was training me and this ministry to be looking out for kids, especially kids in trauma.” —Victor Bennett
“We’ve learned what each other’s strengths are, and we celebrate them.” —Victor Bennett
“Foster care is kind of a faceless crisis. . . , so because of that, it’s hard for people to rally around this crisis because everything is on the low-down. But there are over 440,000 kids in foster care in our country alone, right in our own communities. . . .” —Victor Bennett
