Last year one of Thomas's past students was put into foster care and they were having a hard time finding a home for her. Thomas and Natalie had it in their hearts to volunteer their home. They started the Foster Care training program and since we would be helping out we thought we would go along and get certified too. That placement fell through for them and a good home was found for that child. We completed the program and last month were officially certified. We told our case worker though with Jennifer and the kids here at this point we only had room for an infant. We really didn't think it would happen. Then the phone rang Monday and our case worker said "How crazy is your life right now?" "pretty crazy, why?" "We have a newborn that needs a placement" "WE'RE IN". As we sat in the hospital room holding a four pound baby waiting to finish paperwork we got a text from Natalie saying they were just called to take in a 5 and 6 year old. Now we're all in and our life has gotten even crazier. This is definitely our calling.
