Maggie is a senior at HOPAC. She joined last year, but her parents live three hours away. Since HOPAC is not a boarding school, she found a girls' hostel to live in. We found out this year through the grapevine that this was a really negative situation for her.
So we prayed and thought and decided to convert our garage into a bedroom, and invite her to live with us. She moved in, about a month ago. She is awesome. She is kind and helpful and loves our kids. She is very, very smart--scoring perfect SAT scores in math and physics, and wants to attend MIT to study aerospace engineering. Yeah, I help her with her homework all the time. Ha.
Grace says, "Mommy, I REALLY want my little sister to come home [Yeah, me too, Sweetie!] but I also wanted a big sister and now I have one!" Blessings all around for all of us.
