New Foster Family Needs Supplies

We are a small family of 3.  10 years ago Jimmy & Shannon met on-line and never looked back.  We knew from the start that God brought us together.  7 years ago, our miracle baby, our daughter, Alex was born.  Though the pregnancy came on easy, it was high risk, and Shannon spent the last 3 months in labor.  Luckily, Alex was full-term and healthy.  We have not had any more children, but knew all along we were meant to expand our family with God's children.  Our crazy journey in life has zig-zagged us back and forth across the country.  We have finally settled and bought a home that has open space needing to be filled with the laughter of God's children.  Our challenge is in the preparation.  We need beds, dressers, clothing, toys, school supplies, and some emergency funds for purchases for those who arrive with nothing.  Most times this will be the case unfortunately.  Anything that can be given to help is greatly appreciated.  If you want to donate items we can re-sell, that's great too.  We are not afraid to use ebay or craigslist.  We prayerfully ask for your consideration and that you let God guide you in your decision.  We know He will give us what we need when it is needed.  Through you, His children, it can be done.  Thank you so much and God Bless!

Yeah! We finished our classes last Tuesday night and got a call first thing Wednesday morning to start the licensing process. In 30 to 60 days we will be finished, God willing. The challenge now is we still need a bunk bed, mattresses, bedding, a dresser, toys, and a little decor for the bedroom. If it's on your hearts to donate, we really appreciate it. Please keep us in your prayers as we move forward helping God's children and someday permanently expanding our family.

Woohoo! We have completed 21 hours of training. 6 more hours (2 classes) to go. It has been grueling and heart-breaking to learn about what some of these children endure at the hands of adults and other children. Guiding them through their healing will be a challenge. It is a challenge we are excited to take on.

So far we got a wonderful deal on a bunk bed with mattresses. We also made a road trip to central Florida last week to get some supplies that were at a family member's home. We still have so much preparation to make. Another set of bunk beds, dressers, fire detectors, locks for cleaning supplies and meds, towels, and so much more. It's amazing what it takes.

Thanks so much for all of your kind words and support.
