It is easier to look back on the youth in our home after they have left - Not to sure why, maybe it has something to do with not knowing them when they arrive and by the time they leave you are so emotionally connected to them!?!?

Jonathan arrived (February 9th, 2010) nothing like this first picture I took of him, in fact he arrived with a face of facial hair, broken glasses and a hair cut that looked like it had been done by a pair of old buzzers rusted and worn cut by a four year old?  He's social skills were lacking - he was not able to introduce himself, avoided eye contact and was quick to anger.  In all honesty, I was not to sure how Micah and I were going to be able to help him, but over the course of four week we saw something in him that was NOTHING like how he arrived.
