Hank is home again.....

Things did not work out with the family that Hank went home with nearly two weeks ago, so he is home again. Jody called today, said that her mother-in-law had moved in with them and was terrified of Hank because of his size. We drove to Jacksonville to meet Jody and retrieve Hank....I cannot begin to tell you the mixture of feelings going on inside of me as we went. Please believe me when I tell you that I am an animal lover, but I was so excited that Hank had a family and so encouraged that he would be loved by them. I felt like he had been neglected by us for so long. I am not upset with the family, I am thankful that they were honest and called us....but now we are faced with finding a home for him again and going through the anquish of letting him adjust to our home in the meantime. Please pray for us (and for him), we just simply want to do the right thing. Until we find the proper home for him, we are just going to pour love on him.

I thought we were eating at SW like we do every Sunday after church and that I was cooking supper...anyway, had to get busy....

Sue,
I KNOW that God has other plans for your dear friend Hank! Because we care about him, we can know that God cares too. For whatever the reason, this was not the place Hank was supposed to be. There's another home coming and this one will be a keeper! If he just wasn't male he'd be sitting at my feet right now in his forever home. Not to worry, Hank is still in my prayers and God knows your heart. I love you!
