A Large Crowd Listens Intently About Foster Care
A large crowd of 29 OWLS enjoyed another fine potluck with many excellent desserts. The Petersons provided fine center pieces as today’s servers. Pastors Dan and Lucy discussed Frequently Asked Questions of Foster Care families. The families must be viewed as an extra family to their biological family. They do not replace their actual parents. The primary goal is to return the children to their biological family. They gave a handout of what to “not” say to the foster children and what “to day” to them. The children are there because of some type of trauma. They are in a flight or fight situation. They are doing the best they can. Again the goal is healing with their family. There were several birthdays this month as well as Vi Guetschow who will be 101 on October 5. Two anniversaries were celebrated with Petersons at 54 and Panns at 59. Dave reported we collected $65. The group agreed to cover any leftover expenses for sending the care packages last week as well as items to complete the layettes. Next Month: The next meeting will be October 24 with program TBA.
