With nine children at the table, the Thanksgiving spread had better be a big one.
So the Children’s Home Network, a group foster home in Town ’N Country, served up a large ham, green beans, mac-and-cheese, cornbread, yellow rice and lasagna. Twenty pounds in all, followed by a homemade apple pie.
Even better, mom was there to share in it all. She held and hand-fed her youngest baby, played with the kids and watched TV with them like a regular family.
Then she went home.
The children stayed behind at the cottage that has been their home since they were taken into foster care in six months ago.
That they’re all under one roof, together for Thanksgiving Day, is a minor miracle.
