Then on June 4th we completed our last day as Houseparents at Gateway Woods. After 5 years of houseparenting, we felt like God was telling us that our time at Gateway was coming to an end. Back in January we accepted a position at The New Beginnings in Cape Coral, Florida!! What a change it has been! I miss GW, I miss Oak House, I miss our friends, I miss our church! But I know that this is where God wants us and that excited me! It has been different and hard to adjust to this new life. We have been going, going, going and now we are kind of just going slow. And that's ok....it's just different. And we are a little over an hour from my parents house. How wonderful is that!! It's incredible!
This has been our home for the last 5 years and we have grown so much here! 2 of our babies were born here, birthdays were celebrated, we had good times, we had hard times. I wouldn't trade it for anything! :)
I WILL NOT MISS THIS!!!!
But I am missing this girl SO very much! I would consider her one of my very best friends. My hope is that one day 1200 miles won't separate us!!
This is where we call home now and it's starting to feel like home more and more each day! Pray for us! Pray for our kids! We are excited to join a new mission field and try to reach out to moms that are hurting in the name of Jesus! What an opportunity we have been given!
