Hi there, glad you stopped by. Let me tell you a little bit about us. We raised our family in Oregon on a big Asian Pear Farm in a 22 room Farmhouse.. We had 2200 Asian Pear Trees. ( I helped plant them all!) on 10 acres of ground. We had lots of room for the kids to run and play and work.
We had a lot kids of our own and took on the responsibility of having a lot of Foster Kids in our home. (we had Yours, Mine, and Theirs) Let me say this one thing about these kids, they come from rough backgrounds and never got the Love a real family can provide. So it is very hard for them to trust another adult.
Sometimes we made progress with them and we hope they will remember the memories we shared together.
I was given advice about raising these kids from a caseworker who said if you put a “Spark Of Hope” in them and someday they remember that and become better people you have done a Great Job. We hope we did that with some of them.
But remember make sure you do not forget your own FAMILY while you are doing this.
All of our kids are grown now with children of their own and that means we are grandparents. We Love It!! Our kids are scattered all over the United States and sometimes that is so hard to see everyone. Remember FAMILY (and GRANDKIDS) are so important!
We hope we can help you with tips and help in raising your own FAMILIES.
