In a world where people are failing in marriages more than they are failing in external examinations, the role of step/foster parents have become very crucial to the well-being of every society.
Gladly, there is a very good example what a foster father can be. That perfect example is Joseph, the step father of our Lord Jesus Christ. If we read the book of Luke and Matthew very well, you discover that Joseph stretched himself more the average biological father, the need arose.
I therefore urge every man or woman, who occupies the very challenging position of a foster father, to see the biblical Joseph as his or her role model. That way the family unit of society will be a safe refuge, for so called legitimate or illegitimate children. Most heartwarming is that the Nigerian Constitution does not make recognition of any child as illegitimate. Every child of this circumstance most celebrates the Nigerian constitution.
