During our week there we attended and spoke at a national foster care conference, conducted three days of training, spent time seeing the country, but most importantly connected with people of like mind and heart. It is best shared in pictures....
First - meeting a beautiful special family
Jurek and Edyta have been foster parents for 17 years and have cared for over 40 children, many of whom they keep active contact today. This was our introduction to the hospitality of Poland.
Jurek..he looks so serious here but he is a wonderful, caring, fun-loving foster dad..
Eight of the ten children who live in the foster family....We can almost tell you everyone of their names.
Dora caught our hearts...as did all the children.
Chris, his American name, really connected to David.
Sight-seeing before the serious work
David's right foot is in Poland and his left is in Belarus....Quite a feat to have your feet in different countries!
The Serious Work Begins
First stop the national conference
