Our house

The moment we saw this wonderful Victorian home, we decided we wanted to buy it. The outside was beautiful! Much to our surprise, the inside was terrible.  “We can make this work”, we told ourselves. So we bought the house.  Joe and I worked on restoring the house every weekend, and I spent several days during the week doing what I could manage alone. It took 16 months and we were not done, but we received a call to foster a sibling group of 10.  Of course we said yes to the group on April 28, 2012.  From that day forward, we had an average of 7 foster kids at all times.  Work on the house came to a halt.  There was no time to work on the house, barely enough time to get all of our daily routines done.  Whew!!! Time flies when there are 10 kids in the home.
