Today we got the incredible opportunity to take care of a foster child for an evening!
As some of you know, Jenny has been volunteering her time at a local foster home. Well Jenny has grown attached to a cute little girl named Avery. She’s around Liam’s age and was found incredibly malnourished at an orphanage. This foster home took her in, and is taking wonderful care of her now. She’s still very skinny, but she’s getting better and better!
This foster home allows you to help out by taking the kids from the foster home to go out and play, etc. This helps the people at the foster home because they work there 24/7 with the children and this helps the children so they don’t get cooped up in a house all day and they also get more familiar with foreigners.
We got to take care of little Avery from 2:30-6:30. Jenny brought her home as I was waking up the kids from their naps. When she got home, Levi immediately fell in love with her. He went up and cuddled with her and said, “She’s so cute. I love her so much!”
It was great taking care of her. We hope to continue to take care of her as time goes on. Maybe once a week? We’ll have to see. :)
We took some pictures, but we are not clear as to whether or not we are allowed to post them here on a public website. If we get permission, we’ll put up pictures as soon as we can!
Until next time,
Jeremy, Jenny, Levi, & Liam
