First is that we are marching through the process of becoming foster parents. We turned in about 20 pages of personal info last week, and we'll be interviewed in person next week at our home. So if you have a kid and live in NM and are thinking of doing something really foolish, consider that your kid could be under our care soon. Beware!

Here's the family in MI. Ricky is SO cool!
