I know of some people that are second and third generation houseparents. We have a mother and daughter that work together as a team at our facility. The mother has been here for 35+ years. It turns out it may be a generational thing in my family also.
I have a 14 year old daughter that left the day after Christmas to volunteer at a children’s home in Mexico. She is very excited about helping other kids and worked hard all fall raising money to make the trip. As parents, her mother and I have been somewhat nervous with her being so far away, but according to the last E-mail we received, she is fine and having a great time. I think it is kinda cool that I may have passed my passion on to one of my children, and hope she continues to develop it. I will also be very thankful when she is home again on Thursday.
