The More the Merrier

May 13, 2012

My sister Lisa has embarked upon a new and very exciting chapter in her life.  For as long as I can remember, she has always wanted to either adopt or foster kids.  There is such a need for that in our world, and Lisa has always seen that need as a calling.  After a great number of checks and assurances in many forms (financial scrutiny, physical check up, personal interviews with social workers, background checks, home and auto inspections, just to name a few), she was cleared to have kids placed with her.  Almost immediately, Riley and Emily, brother and sister, met with Lisa for a few visitations before the actual placement.  There was an immediate connection, with Lisa and with Lisa's girls, and before long her family had grown by two.  I'm thrilled for her and and all the kids, and can't wait to meet my new niece and nephew.
