Our first couple outtings might be as simple as renting a van, gathering a couple chaperones and heading out to a Giants game by AMTRAK. I will never forget the first time I rode AMTRAK (in fact it wasnt that long ago.) What a fun experience that was. When you step out of your norm by going to a new place or traveling on a new form of transit, it gives you this awesome feeling of independence. Those are the types of things we want to share with these kids. New experiences teach a person about themself as well as this world we live in. Alot of foster kids have experienced enough of the negative things in life........we want to add to the positive. Our hope is that we can create a long lasting relationships with some of the kids. If that doesnt happen, at least they will have a positive memory.....that will last a lifetime.
