Sharing our Taco Tuesday night with Stacia. We've known Stacia for 4 years. She first visited our small group from church with three other college girls who go to SCC too. We were studying the Purpose Driven Life and everyone was encouraged to get into a small group. Shortly after their first visit to small group we invited all the girls to our house for tacos. Stacia's brother Adam happened to be visiting then too so he came also. We had a blast. The boys were in rare form (NOT!) that night. We shared so much laughter! And my tacos were a hit. For the next couple years, the girls came and went from small group (when they were in town because they were all college volleyball players). Somehow it was Stacia that stayed. We became her mom and dad away from home. Her parents even consider us that way too. Of course, on our invitation to Stacia's graduation party her dad put on it "You've had her for 4 years and we want her back!...(but we don't want to let her go!!!!) She'll start nursing school in South Dakota in August. She has not only been like a daughter to us she has been like a brother to John and Jarrod. When she comes over, she listens to them, talks to them, plays games with them, whoops them at air hockey, teases them, and loves them. I will never forget her or the impact she has had on my family.
