Our First Call

We just got our first call tonight for a little boy, but we had to say no. That was excrutiating. It's a very real thing now that there are kids right now that are being taken from their homes. And I can't help but wonder what that little boy is going through tonight. I wonder if he's scared. I wonder if he'll be able to sleep. I wonder if the family that's caring for him will take good care of him and hold him when he cries.  My heart is just aching tonight... But I know God has got just the right child for us - and we'll be able to make a difference...

It does just break your heart to know there are children out there who aren't being just loved on and cared for constantly!! We will be praying for that little boy and for the special child God is bringing your way!!

So sorry to hear that, Jill. I know that it is tough & that you are listening to God. Even tho you couldn't take him in, praying is just as good! Keep us up-dated so we can pray, too.

Vicki is constantly telling me DAILY of situations (not specifics) of what is going on & having to take kids out of homes (several, even off the street ... SERIOUSLY! PLAYING. IN. THE. STREET.) There are kids out there and God knows where to place them. It's ok. We'll keep praying for you guys.
