We are Here!

Our first answer to prayer came at 9:00 AM when we found out we got into the Ronald McDonald House.  Our second answer came when Lauren, my cousin who is a college student at Penn State Harrisburg campus, was able to meet us at the Ronald McDonald House and help me get settled.  

We arrived about 4:00.  Leo has tried to leave numerous times and is not as impressed with the place as I am.  The house is beautiful.  The volunteers wonderful.  The amount of food in this house is unreal.  Dinner was ham, potatoes, baked pineapple, salad with all the trimmings, 3 different kinds of bread, rolls, and green beans.  Then there were at least 6 deserts all prepared by volunteers. Everything was delicious.  There are 2 refrigerators with food that is there for anyone to use. I am a stress eater so none of this is a good thing.  Tonight's dinner will be put in the frig for anyone to use for lunches for tomorrow.  There is a coffee station and a keurig machine!  Tyler and Jordan would be in food heaven here.  There is even a 25 cent soda machine.  

There is an outside playground and a toy room.  
 Our one and only smile came when Leo met Blizzard the therapy dog.

There is a therapy dog here each night and even a pot belly pig comes to visit.  

This is a house full of stories. There are probably about 25 families here each with a child receiving some sort of care that requires them to be away from home.  We met a little girl named Miracle tonight who is 6 years old.  She truly is a miracle for all she has been through in her short life.  

Tomorrow we begin feeding therapy.  Let the games begin...
