We've been invaded!

December 2009 013












SEVEN!!!!  Seven boys in one day!!!!  What was I thinking???

December 2009 020Well, in spite of the fact that they all arrived at once, these little lovelies are wonderful additions to our dorm!   They bring my numbers right back up to 32, the number I was at before some moved up and some moved home. 

I'll admit, it's been a little stressful.  It probably wasn't the brightest idea to bring them in all at once but some other considerations made it the best decision.  It's tricky for the boys already in the dorm to absorb seven new personalities at once. 

December 2009 024And these seven have come from within our center.  The ladies on either end, Tracey on the left and Vella on the right, both live in "transition" dorms with very small numbers.  So these boys came from houses of eight and six respectively.  Into a dorm of 32!  So, they've been used to a lot of control and attention and they simply won't receive as much of that in my dorm. 

But we will love them and care for them and they (and I!) will adapt - kids always do! Please just keep us in your prayers!!
