Response to pnwmom (Original post)

35. Thank you for this very good post.

We sheltered two of my daughter's friends for short periods of time during high school. We live in a rural area so we did know their circumstances.. both had a single parent who went to jail and the other parent was absent. Each needed a place and we had an extra bedroom. I honestly never gave it much thought, but now I probably would. That said, I can't imagine saying no in either case. It worked out well for all of us and we've remained close over the years.

America is full of broken people and support just isn't there, but every now and then you get the opportunity to help. I would encourage everyone, if at all possible, to always try to say yes.
