***  Aha Momment:

My AHA moment came when as a 40 year old not-particularly-maternal
divorcee I entered into “experimental parenting”  to answer the
question, “I wonder if I'm ever going regret not having had kids?”

Our county (Arlington, Virginia) offers, in addition to traditional
foster parenting, a type of foster parenting called “respite care”,
which means taking care of kids when their regular foster parents have
to be out of town or just need a break. That seemed the easiest slide
for an ambivalent parent but experienced babysitter. So I took the
foster parenting courses, did the background check, got certified, and
signed up for respite care.

My first placements were 12 and 7 year old sisters. They were with me a
couple of weekends before their original placement (with well
intentioned but unprepared relatives) fell apart, and they came to live
me full time. A year later, their parents' rights were terminated, which
obligates the state to put them up for adoption. This meant they'd most
likely move, be separated from each other, who knows. Meantime, while I
loved them tremendously I thought I was still an ambivalent parent as
far as the long-term view goes.

That month I happened to have a week-long business trip away from and
that's when I had my AHA! Moment. I not only DID want kids, I wanted
THESE kids.  Our adoption became final June 2005.

I've also continued to take in kids on emergency and respite basis.
While I'd like to imagine I've changed the lives of every kid who's
stayed here, I realize that for many all  I've probably done is provide
them a few days of solace and safety – and that's OK!  I know this is
not technically “volunteering” since I do get per diem reimbursement
from the state. But I'd still call it “volunteering” since the $15/day
is instantly absorbed by the costs of  feeding, sheltering, clothing,
and transporting a kid around Northern Virginia .

PS. Anyone interested in foster parenting, please feel free to contact
me directly. It's the most gratifying and spiritually rewarding thing
I've ever done. And I got two kids without having to go through caffeine
withdrawal, labor, or stretch marks.   ;>)

***  Most gratifying volunteer experience:

I needed *something* with meaning to do in the afternoon when my friends
were still at work and I was free because I was working a morning
drivetime radio news schedule.  I made arrangements to read to a blind
76 year old woman one afternoon a week. Turned out, she wanted to talk
more than be read to, and she needed assistance in maintaining her
correspondence with folks back in England, where she had been born and
lived until she became an adult and moved to New York State. Of course,
a few months into it, I went from a morning drive schedule to a more
normal, daytime schedule.  But I was able to continue taking a few hours
off one afternoon a week to meet with her; this lasted for several
years.  After she died, I visited her home town just outside of London
and saw many of the places she had talked about, the old biscuit factory
where her father worked, the girls school she attended, etc. I still
exchange December holiday cards these many years later with one of her
correspondents, who sought the continued contact in response to my
letter letting her know of her friend's passing.

***  A memory of a lifetime:

A few weeks ago I was on a bus returning from New York City with a
church youth group. My agreeing to act as chaperone for this trip was
key to the trip happening since no one else at our church was willing to
do it. The trip was a great success. We spent a night at a cathedral,
participated in a midnight service, explored New York, and met kids from
youth groups all over Massachusetts. As I was relaxing on the bus, I was
remembering a similar bus trip to Washington, D.C. when I was in high
school. It then occurred to me that these kids would remember this New
York trip their whole lives.

Janet Knudsen

(I was on that bus, wasn't I?)

Since it's one of those lifetime memories, I seem to recall you were.

(What else do you remember from that memory of a lifetime…ago.)

Being chased by the secret service on the White House lawn (“I had
separated from the group”), seeing the pandas at the zoo, beer in the
bathtub, matching shoes from The Barn, the Vince Lombardi Memorial Truck
Stop, the Boston Plan, my first exposure to grits…and lots more.

(Was that the time I tried to interview the president and the Secret
Service yanked me away when I pointed my microphone in his face?  And
was that the invention of Party Central?)

***  Historic volunteer opportunity:

Ned –

No teenage Frankenstein, I was a weekend living history blacksmith at
Fort Vancouver National Historic Site (Vancouver, Washington USA). Shop
volunteers provided visitors an interpretive experience based on fort
life in 1843.

The work gave me great insight into the reality of frontier life — both
harsher and, in ways, more advanced than I had been taught in school —
and the remarkable skills obtained and used by pre-Industrial Revolution
metalworkers. More than that, though, I got to meet people visiting from
all over the world. Kids could be an absolute treat. Only a six-year old
would come back after one visit to the forge and ask without reservation
in front of a crowd, “Have you made a straight nail yet?” (His father ,
shaking his head: “I don't tell him to say these things.”)

For four hours a week I got to be somebody else living in another time
and hold court to visitors who came from near and far to share the
variety of human experience. Rare and very rewarding.

Most organizations don't have a good crisis plan for two reasons:
1) They cost so much ($25,000-$75,000)
2) They take too long to write (Usually 6 months or more.)

crisis plan in just two days, for only $5,995. And, if you are one
