some of you may have been following the saga of foster mom adventures, an absolutely courageos friend (and m.o.h.) of ours who ignored her own sanity and has given over her life for two children in need of sanctuary.

we were their neck of the woods this weekend, and got to spend some time quality with our maid-of-honor-emeritus and her charges. and by “quality time” i mean “lots of piggy back rides.”

it’s really a beautiful thing how a person can give over her life to children in need, and even more beautiful to see how resilient and wonderful children can be in even the most adverse of circumstances.

it sounds like it’s going to be a long week for the girls, so keep the whole fostermom clan in your thoughts and prayers.

update: turns out there is a happy ending (er, beginning?) to the whole situation. if you haven’t been following, now is the time to start.
