In a few hours I will be heading to Columbia to pick up some friends from the bus station. A family of four, two boys 9 and 10 years old. Friends having a hard time with nowhere to go. I sent money saved for a mission trip for bus tickets. They will arrive with what they could take on the bus and they will be staying with us until they can get back on their feet.
We will not be able to take any foster children for a while. We are still working on our adoption homestudy. We have delays in that area. We can't get my moms fingerprints because we can't get her ID. We can't get her ID because we need a copy of her marriage license and neither her nor my dad can tell me when OR where they got married. Perhaps our homestudy will get completed about the time our friends are ready to leave.
I have concerns. Financially, different parenting styles, thirteen people in our home. It shall be an exciting adventure.
Say a prayer for us.
