warm fuzzies: The Rucker Family



I was inspired this morning by this video of the Rucker family; a retired Marine Corps couple that began foster caring children. In the last seven years, they have cared for 45 children, and even adopted one of the little girls they cared for. It's couples like this that provide safety, hope, food, clothing, and love for so many children who go without each day. They definitely deserved the Marine family of the year award for their efforts.

I read this post a week ago, but was on vacation and buzzing through blogs. I wanted to come back and say thank you for featuring this family. What incredible people!
