Our Adventure in Fostering begins

Things have been a little crazy lately so I am behind in writing this blog, but we added 3 kids to our family overnight! That is mind boggling. Go ahead - try to imagine the same thing happening in your family. It is overwhelming, and scary, and humbling. But 2 weeks later, we have survived to tell the tale and all is going well.

Over labor day weekend, we got news of a possible placement for a 10 year old boy. No problem we thought. By the end of the weekend, we had taken him, his 6 year old brother, and 5 year old sister in. We had to do some major scrambling and with the help of some very generous friends and family, and the wonderful members of Clearwater Community Church we had enough clothes to get by and had changed our king bed to two twin beds.

Getting everything figured out for them to start back school, out of our zoning, took patience. Then the next week, the youngest was sick. But I think we have started to settle into a routine.

My girls are loving it so far, especially their new roomie. They all get along very well, and aside from having to tweak my time management skills I feel like Matt and I are a great team.

Many ups and downs face us, for that I am sure. But, I know we are doing Gods will, and that fels wonderful.

Pray for us and our family of 7!
