‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Homestudy? Check!

D, our host child from Ukraine
Well, Nastia and I completed our homestudy for D, our host child, today! It was such an enjoyable experience, because the woman who came to interview us is someone in the community I admire very much. We got to speak in depth about a great many important things, including the urgent need in our state for emergency foster care parents. So I asked her to let me know when the next training starts as Nastia and I would LOVE to do this.

Anyway, nothing left to do in prep for D but to keep praying for her sage arrival and gentle transition into family life, make her a welcome sign and buy some balloons! Hope the next ten days sail by quickly. we are so grateful to be able to care for this little sweetheart for 5 weeks, and shower her with love. Can't wait to see what God has in store. grateful, grateful, grateful!
