Hello Again

Yes, I did return from Haiti…(in case you were wondering)  I did not intend to drop off the blog planet,  but I did so now  I am stuck wondering where to pick up and start blogging again.  I finally realized I just had to jump in and write something.

The main reason for the silence on my blog is that a week after the Haiti trip, we took in a 6 week old.  He was here for only 5 weeks, but he captured all of our hearts and we’ve been feeling a bit empty since he left.   The awesome part?  We got to know his parents and have been able to visit him.  If any story has a chance of turning out well, its this one, and for that we have been grateful, and humbled to have played a small part in it.

Our lives have been a bit of a whirlwind this past year, and for that reason I was really tempted to give up fostering for now and focus on my family – especially since my oldest is planning on going to college next fall.

BUT… we got an email this afternoon about an emergency placement for a 1.5 yo.  I think it was all of 4 hours between first being asked and him being dropped off.  So…here we go again.  If any of you would be willing to pray for us, that would be appreciated!
