After getting a call from the social service agency and “without a second thought about the limited space in her house, the beds they didn’t have or the children’s clothes she didn’t own,” a Pennsylvania woman — for the fourth time — drove immediately to pick up siblings who needed emergency foster care. This time it was four brothers and sisters ranging in age from 5 to 11.

Kelly Abell and her husband Brian welcomed the children, as they first did six years ago when they first volunteered at the Children’s Home of York.

Before arriving back at her Hanover home, family friends had brought bunk beds to the house and her church’s orphan ministry also brought over clothes, car seats and side rails for the beds.
