1 year anniversary

I meant to get this posted yesterday but ran out of time. Yesterday marks the one year anniversary of two of our foster kiddos. We sure have come a long way in that time frame. They are great kids and have been great kids from the start but they were sad, nervous, not sure about anything when they came. We were their second placement due to a BAD placement the first time so that made their anxiety even higher. But they have blended into our family. They have so many that love them. The oldest, MK, has even began to show me affection. I was pretty much last on her list to that. I understand though, she didn't want to appear to be a traitor to her Mom. They love their parents and their parents love them. Now that they have a stable home to be and they have regular visits there is a peace that has just settled within them. I am so happy for them. I am so thankful God chose us for them to come and live with. It doesn't seem it has been a year...we all have learned so much. Continue to pray for them. They still have some hoops to go through. Right now we just take each day as it comes. I love them so much and I am so thankful for them!
LB and MK now

My how time flies! Yes, I remember them being at VBS with us last year. My kids are sure having fun with MK.

Thanks so much for standing up and standing in for these children. You are a wonderful example to all Christ followers by loving His children.

Love,
Heather
