When my children were born in 1993, "Mrs. Lynne" was just keeping a couple of children in her home. I had premature twins, and with my daughter on a heart monitor, we weren't even sure I would be able to return to work. One phone call and a visit later, and we became one of Lynne's families.

 

She took a lot of the worry off a working mom's shoulders and went out of her way to make things easy for the families. Such things as washing dirty clothing instead of sending them home, or keeping a child when they weren't feeling well. I always knew they weren't just cared for, but were also loved. They were truly Lynne's kids, and I couldn't imagine a better start.
