inspirational songs : I Love My Foster Mom and Dad by Inspirational Speaker Derek Clark

I wrote this song as a dedication to all foster and adoptive parents. Thank you for working hard to restore love in a child or youth. I sincerely appreciate and love mine. I am so fortunate to have had foster parents who never gave up on me…even when I was not adoptable. My foster parents are very special to me, although being the hell-raiser I was, it wasn’t always obvious. I do consider them my Mom and Dad. They have earned it. They said they loved me but I continually tested the limits of their unconditional love. No doubt it was tested to the extreme. They had to put up with so much more than the average parents. I am so grateful for their love and patience. I would not be who I am today without their dedication, love and trusting that they would never give up on me. Trust was a big issue with me, If my own mother and father could throw me away, how could I trust anyone else…but I eventually let down my walls and let their love in. They loved and believed in me. They provided me with a home, family, hope and love. I treated them awful at times and yet, they never changed the locks on the front door. They worked with me even when I had so much baggage and behavioral problems growing up. Simply put, they believed in my greatness and they never gave up on me! Let us strive to give hope to others.Derek Clark is an inspiring motivational speaker, trainer and the author of the critically acclaimed I Will Never Give Up book series and Never Limit Your Life.

This song says it all about never giving up hope on God. My 3 year old daughter sings along with me. It is amazing that she walked into my recording studio that day and started singing. Her voice is angelic in this song. Have you ever given up on God? Or been close to giving up on Him? I have. This is the story of a spiritual journey: from feeling abandoned by God to feeling embraced by God. For years I’d felt an oppressive weight bearing down on me: the burden of anger against God. Why did it feel like He never stuck up for me? Why didn’t He rescue me from the abuse, loneliness, and pain of a troubled childhood? Why didn’t He stop my parents from abandoning me to the foster care system? With every disappointment, I became more and more convinced He wasn’t there, wasn’t guiding me through my struggles. He either could not or would not comfort me during the hard times; the times I needed Him most. I didn’t fear God, and secretly despised Him. It was the drowning death and resuscitation of a young girl that forced me to rethink my contentious and unhealthy relationship with God. Knocked hard out of my irreligious complacency, I came to see tragedy, hope, suffering, and overcoming with new clarity and understanding. Adversity, I realized, can be one of God’s greatest blessings. This spiritual epiphany has filled me with immeasurable gratitude: for the breath of life, the goodness around me, and even for the sad, troubled past I had to overcome. This is a story about

  • THANK YOU SIR. MY WIFE AND I HAVE BEEN FOSTER PARENTS FOR 8 YEARS. WE ARE ALSO ADOPTIVE PARENTS. THIS IS THE HARDEST JOB THAT I EVER HAD. THIS IS THE MOST REWARDING JOB I EVER HAD. IT IS A FANTASTIC FEELING WHEN THE CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN IN YOUR HOME COME BACK LATER ON AND THANK YOU FOR LETTING THEM BE A PART OF YOUR FAMILY. WE TELL THEM FROM THE FIRST TIME THEY CROSSED OUR DOOR STEPS THEY WERE OUR KIDS AND THEY WILL ALWAYS BE. SO THANK YOU AGAIN FROM A FOREVER HOME PROVIDER

  • i am a foster kid my name is kaleb and i got put in foster care because my mother and father abused me and my three sisters and my mother cracked my head open because i lost a fake ruby and my dad raped my sister but now i am with my grandparents and i love it here but i still wish everyone could of had a normal family

  • Crosbykid, I am so sorry that your experience has not been good. Please know that MOST foster families are not in it for the money. We were foster parents and believe me I spent way more money than I ever recieved. We adopted 2 children and when the time is right (bigger home) may do so again. I pray that God will show you His love through your experience and you will learn how much He loves you!

  • these comments are all from foster parents, people that work with the agency. And foster care is nothing like that. Foster Care is not that good. The only way your going to get a good home is if your really lucky. i should know i have been in foster care for like all my life. The only reason people try to help kids like me is cause they are in it for the MONEY. No one ever does it for kindness.

  • oh I like this video.. I work with foster kids and the place I work takes the kids that foster parents will not take, the kids ran from or there were no foster parents to take them…sometimes a kid goes to a great foster home & leaves our ‘group home’ that is always a good day…I have a few that have called to say how they are doing….makes me smile..

  • Loved the song :). Makes me think of Jeremiah 29-11 ” for I know the plans I have for you declares the lord plans to prosper you not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future” that’s what I live my life by

  • I love it! God Bless!

  • i love this song and God can save you too

  • i really enjoyed the song, i was a little like that just a few years ago, i am now a teen with great parents and friends and this song is really really inspirational. i hope that all the foster parents see what a huge difference they make to the children in the world

  • God save my little boy, In Jesus name. Amen

  • Thank You Derek for coming to speak with us about your story,i’ll never forget today. It inspired me so much.
