September and October always bring the beginning of a new school year here in Romania, but, it is nothing like how it was when I was teaching in the U.S. Gone are the days of bulletin boards, teacher in-service, and back to school night, yet, in its place are schedule planning, interviews for the transition houses and an occasional team. I always get a little excited at the beginning of October because I know that we have a new batch of kids coming into our transition program. This year we have six boys; all six from Rosiori de Vede. We opened the boy's house on October 1st. I made the trip down south to Nenciulesti to help welcome them to their new home for the next nine months. We took hygiene items down that they would be needing, some clothes and of course I baked a cake! Everyone loved the cake and I of course had to give out the recipe! The boys were both nervous and excited to begin this new adventure. They have been there almost a month now and they seem to be adjusting. Please pray for the amazing things God is going to do in their lives this year!
