Back in the Saddle

Our World enjoyed a nice loooong vacation during the holidays.  We are all back on the horse and planning for an outstanding 2016.  We are working to improve our service and training to our familiies. This we hope will create a positive experience with each child we touch.  Know we are strong believers that each child God allows us to serve is more valuable that gold and silver or a precious gem stone.  We want them to be able to say that foster care was a positive - good experience...
