If you would join us in prayer...

I have applied to work at Everyday Blessings, a child placing and child care residence. Jacob and I would live in and take care of four boys two-- age 7 and two-- age 3. I would care for them from 4:30 in the afternoon till 8:30 when they leave for school or I drop the youngest at nursery-down the hall). I have the day off and do not even cook dinner. There is a dining room for all children and caregivers. I will provide weekend meals however, but all pantry food is available to me.....
Jacob would be able to continue his security guard job and his schooling as the property is near USF-tampa.
WE enjoyed our day out there with the little ones and look forward to an overnight visit next week.

Please join Jacob and I in prayer as we make this very special decision. Change may be difficult on the heels of our loss. Any "con" that I see is for selfish reasons such as space , or personal time....

I don't want to live a selfish life. I only have this one life. I want to live it right.

Wow, what a unique opportunity. I will definitely be praying for you and Jacob to make the best decision. You are such a giving, loving and fun person and I am sure these boys would benefit greatly from your care giving. I am praying for you!!

I am praying with you concerning this opportunity.

I came across a blog of a couple who lost their baby almost the same day you lost yours:
