exciting times at work.

So Tuesday we'll be bringing in new families. We made phone calls this morning to our new families and to the ones that we aren't able to bring in. It was heartbreaking really, we interviewed 9 families and could only bring in 4. The worst part about that was that the 5 we had to say no to all were certainly qualified and could have been great families. I certainly hope that the other families might be able to find some resources here in the city that might get them out of the situations that they are in.

The ones I called this morning to confirm about being in the program were so very excited. I didn't have quite the reaction as I got with one family last year, but I still had to move the phone away from my ear as they screamed. It is so great to be giving new families a chance. We certainly know we will have challenges with them ahead, but I'm excited to get to know these new families and really get to know them.

We're doing some last minute prep on Monday to bring the families in, and then Tuesday is the day. On Tuesday we'll have 4 new families to care for and deal with. Which means that I'm going to be busy. But I thrive on busy so that's good.

I do just want September to come quickly. Once we get to September things won't be as unpredictable. I like being busy but I sure like structure.

Prayers for Saranam are always appreciated, but right now we really truly need them.
