Next year we may look into camp, but it WILL NOT be Impact. I'm so sad because it really has it's benefits in building on the Christian faith. But, I can not allow my girls to be traumatized. With Impact camp each week has different volunteer counselors. We may go back to Camp Eberhart. My Owen grew up in this camp 1 week every summer from the time he was 8 yrs old until he graduated high school. It's not a Church camp, but it does maintain strong Christian values.
W are coming up to the end of our volunteering with http://www.petrefuge.com/ It's been 4 years of fostering baby kittys. 78 adoptions have come through our home. About 1/3 of the babies have been bottle feeders. We have had the opportunity to watch several live births, one in my car. We have lost a few as well, I guess God needed a few more baby kittys running around, after all they are so sweet. I've had a few injuries along the way. I think the worst was the feral momma who wanted nothing to do with her babies and didn't want me to either. That one required 3 rounds of antibiotics and a shot in the backside. Thank God for much cushion to help the pain. It's been wonderful experience, it really taught the girls so much about life in simple ways. I think it also helped our Caroline transition. Shortly after she came to us, was the around the same time as the feral mama, so those babies needed allot of love and she provided it for them.
But sadly because of all that's going on in my personal life, time is up for us to foster anymore. Here are a few pics of some of the babies. Caroline is holding Mei Fen and Lo Mein, 2 of the bottle babies from the feral mama.
