As you know, we’ve be doing foster care for a number of years now. One of the most difficult things as a foster parent is finding respite care. In fact when Julio was with us I think it took the best part of 18 months before we could find anyone that we were comfortable with him spending the night with.

So, when we got a call last month from someone in a very similar position, we felt that it was only fair if we stepped up to the plate. Yesterday, Chanell came to hang out with use for the next 10 days. I have a feeling that by the end of it we’re all going to be experts in Dora the Explorer! Chanell is an adorable four year old with a number of challenges medically, physically, and developmentally so I may have to put my nurses cap back on for a while!
