Here's Jenn's story (original link here):
I am so amazed though not surprised and incredibly humbled and grateful right now. We have been blessed with such a great circle of friends here. I sent out an email a few days ago explaining that Ryan and I are going to be starting classes next month to obtain our Foster Parent license so as to begin the Foster-to-adopt journey. It is 30hrs of classes, spread over 3 nights & 2 full saturdays. Since we don’t have any family in town to pawn the kids off on, the idea of arranging childcare was more than a little daunting. However, within 1 day all 5 ‘opportunities’ to babysit were filled by amazing friends! We still have to figure out when & where we’ll do the First Aid/CPR/blood borne pathogen training class, so the 2 folks who have expressed interest in helping out that haven’t been assigned a day to cover for us, might still have an opportunity. So thanks all of you who have so quickly and eagerly rallied. We are extremely grateful. …I’m sure we’ll need you around for a lot more than just babysitting!
I'm so excited for them as they begin this journey. Their kids are excited, their church is excited and I know that God, too, is excited when His people reach out to kids who need love.
