I found out about a lovely Christian couple that takes in young men after they have been incarcerated . A lot of these young men do not have a home to go back to. Or, they are striving to distance themselves from the environment of friends that were part of their past.
I bought four warm hoodie jackets for the young men I knew that were with the family. I had some other items to donate also. They came by with their new “Dad” and picked the items up. These young men exuded manners and graciousness. We talked about their plans for the future and their goals of achieving great things through hard work and education. I just know they are going to make it. When they left, each of the guys gave me a big hug. One of them even picked me up off the ground and playfully swung me around. I was caught off guard and shrieked. We all laughed. They were just like my teenage boys…full of fun…and now they had a chance at a new life thanks to the couple that was pouring their lives into them.
