Back to Cleveland!

It had been 30 years. I lived in Cleveland for 2 years. The last thing I did there was to attend my friend's wedding in 1988.

Last week I was back in Cleveland for my son's wedding. It was great. The liturgy was chanted. Everything was beautiful. The bride's family was very gracious. We had a great time!

The need is great!

I mentioned back in 2016 that we were finally licensed for foster care in South Carolina. Since then we have had 10 children ranging from 4 months to 15 years come into our home for times ranging from a few days to more than 2 years.

Our very first foster child is still with us after more than 2 years. Presently we also have 2 other young children.

But we get calls all the time to take more....
Yesterday we had two calls: the first to take a sibling group comprising 6-month old and two-year old; the second for a sibling group of 5 children.

And this is not the first time we have received multiple calls in one day.

We don’t have the beds or rooms to take more than we have now. (Sometimes I wish we did – other times we feel overwhelmed with whoever we have at the time.)

It is hard to say “no”.

The need is tremendous. We have been very blessed.
