We got our first Safe Families call today. Maridel, our local director, gave us the scenario and wondered if it would work out for us. I called Jason who happened to be almost home. We prayed and decided we could do it. It was a short stay situation, which we are somewhat hoping for in the beginning to get our feet wet! While talking to Maridel she alerted us to an article in the Star Tribune about Safe Families. It's exciting to see Safe Families get some press!! Read the article....good stuff!!
Anyway......our family was excited and anxiously awaiting a call with more details about pick-up times etc. We were bummed, however, when Maridel called to say the mom had made other arrangements. Oh well!! We know that's just how it works sometimes! We have to be flexible. Apparently God has another child/children in mind. That's just fine with us. But we'll pray for this family and mom.(As a side note: We are obligated to privacy in regards to the moms, kids, etc. So most of the details I give will be vague, generalized.....and obviously no pictures....unless my resident photographer does a great job of editing!:)
