Friday On My Mind: A New Beginning

2012 February 21
by Kent


Moving day is Friday. That’s when our two guys come to live with us for as long as they need us. 

Things have happened and changed – like the publish days – since  I started this blog, but from the beginning I said I wouldn’t be telling you things about the kids who come here, and I’m sticking to that. They are entitled to their privacy. If you know us you’ll meet them soon enough.

I can say we are excited and, I may add, scared out of our minds. I’m sure they are too. Moving from the foster home they’ve been in to ours, another school district, leaving friends behind…

And unable to wheedle a promise out of a couple of adults about just where their permanent home is going to be. Even as much as those two adults want with all their hearts to say, “Here! It’s here.”

They’ll be here Friday.

    Come on Friday! I am excited for you guys and these boys!
    I know those boys will be moving from one great foster home to another great foster home. You and Jennifer already have what they need….hearts full of love, understanding, and compassion.
    May God continue to bless you on your wonderful journey. I know He will use you and Jennifer to touch the lives of many young people!

      It’s here!
      Thank you for your continued encouragement and prayer, Michelle. I took the day of from work (and blogging) getting a few last things ready. We should have a little time after they get here and then it’s off to their new school where we’ll all meet with their guidance counselor and have orientation.
