A soft place to settle': Clintonville family fosters unaccompanied minors from Honduras

FYI about 3 months ago I posted about my friends and neighbor who have been hosting 2 refugee children
from Central America and how hurt and damaged the younger girl was. Well, about once a week I make a
meal for the family and a lot my neighbors all chip in a buy groceries and help out too. I can't tell you how
proud I am of my friend Andi, her family, and my neighbors. Kindness works.

BTW Clintonville is a neighborhood in N. Columbus, OH

Well here is the back story.

A soft place to settle': Clintonville family fosters unaccompanied minors from Honduras

At first, Andi Mocharski was intimidated by the idea of fostering older children, especially those who weren't fluent in English.

The Clintonville mother of four adopted children had only ever fostered younger kids who grew up speaking English, and the ones she was about to welcome into her home were a 10-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy from Honduras.

But it was more than that: They were unaccompanied minors who crossed the U.S-Mexico border alone. Their mom was still living in a camp there, and their father had been murdered.

Although Mocharski was nervous before the children moved in with her family in November, everything worked out fine.
