SO, what is this news, you may be asking. Dustin and I have started the application process to become a Host Family through an organization called Safe Families for Children. We first learned about it through the church Liam attends school at. The church was starting a new Foster Care Ministry, and we opened our hearts to what we felt like the Lord was prompting us and attended the first meeting, but didn't really know what area of service we would be serving in. During the meeting, Safe Families did a presentation, and Dustin and I felt like the Lord moved on our hearts to become a Host Family. It is a wonderful program that I had never even heard of before. I didn't realize programs like this existed, but the mission of the organization is exactly what drew us in. While we didn't find God prompting us yet for Foster Care or Adoption, this program seemed to hit our hearts. We especially are interested in helping to support families in this program whose children have acute or complicated medical needs, which I feel we are fit to handle. We covet your prayers during this time of application and approval! We are excited to have this door opened.
On other fronts, everything here is well. House projects are coming along nicely and since it is almost 75 degrees today - beautiful day in Texas!
Liam is quickly becoming a fan of playing computer games - it is nice, but I am realizing just what a different environment us parents are having to face as our children learn about technology....iPad, iPhone, computers...I've never seen his attention span last longer than when he is playing some type of technology...I find it quite difficult to set boundaries! That is one of my goals for this year!
I will leave yall tonight with pictures from the last few weeks with Christmas! Hope everyone had a Happy New Year!
