One More April 2, 2012

Just after the New Year, Michael and I brought our 6 year old nephew, Timmy, home to live with us for a time. We asked my brother and Timmy’s mom to let us take him the rest of the school year to help him finish out the school year and allow them to work on making a stable life for Timmy. Since coming here Timmy got promoted from kindergarten to first grade and even made Student of the Month in March. Then last week we asked Timmy’s mom to come live with us so that we could help her make a life for Timmy here in town. This experience overall has been so reminiscent of our days as foster parents-so many of the same struggles and wins. Having his mom here has been new but we can already see so many positive things coming out of it.
Just last week as Michael was telling someone about our new housemate, they asked him, “How many people fit at your house?” Currently we have two people in each of our three bedrooms. But, Michael’s response is 1. One of the many reasons I love him and 2. Just confirmation God has given us the same heart for his people. Michael looked at the person who asked how many fit in our house and said, “One more.”
