We knew hosting would be different

“I was supposed to have 5-6 more years before I sent a child off to prom. But sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you take a chance on something that most people tend to think is crazy. We knew hosting would be different, possibly strange, but never would’ve imagined how much we would love these kids.

I cried last night at pictures, when they rode off for dinner and again at Senior Walkout out of pure pride and joy. I love these boys just like my own and am so proud to be their Host Mom! I’m so thankful for a husband who always says “we’ll give it a shot” to my crazy ideas.”
