We spent nine days there playing with the kids, doing VBS, working around the facility, and showing Christ's love to kids who don't have a mom or a dad. A few days into the trip our leader, Tim, asked me which one I would want to adopt. I laughed. “I don't think so, Tim.”
Well, not too many days later I was seriously thinking about the possibility of one of the kids becoming a Rummery! Katie really bonded with some of the kids as well, both her age and younger. I think Cindy was pretty shocked and excited when I came home and told her what I was thinking. Christina liked the idea, too. That was August, 2009. God has been working powerfully in our hearts ever since.
