We are full up!!!!

We are full with 10 children right now, though in an emergency we will find room. This is 5 in the last 2 weeks. We have been blessed with 2 sisters who are with us for at least 3 months. They are victims of physical abuse and it is hard to believe that someone can beat a 2 and a 4 year old hard enough to leave bruises on both and a swollen kidney in a 2 yr old.

We have been here at home for a while and the summer is keeping us inside for most of the day. We are going to Mexicali tomorrow for our Psychologist appt. and that will be exciting with 10 little girls, 5 of them under 6 yrs old. Luckily for us Marty at Mirror Image takes good care of us and keeps our van detailed to make the trip bearable. When you are here he is the guy for cleaning your vehicle.

We had 2 different groups of volunteers from Canada who came and did things to help that we have not been able to do and it made an incredible difference around here. We were able to finish many projects, like the chicken coop, and the group from Chiliwack even painted our house on the outside. An incredible blessing, we are ready for a couple more years. All of the volunteers that have and do come to help us here make all the difference in the world for us. We couldn’t do this work without everyone’s help and support.
We are looking forward to everyone returning when the weather changes. We have talked with DIF and we are going to be able to have some of you that have asked to be certified to stay with the kids at night to give us a chance to have a little time off. This is only available to residents with homes here, but it is possible if you want to help. Please let me know if you are interested and I can get some info to you. Also, please check out our needs list on the website. We will be changing things to allow for the new girls.
