S.O.S.: Help needed!

There is no longer any immunization/vaccination requirement - not even chicken pox - to volunteer in our home, and we desperately need some extra helping and holding hands, especially during the daytime hours (6 a.m. to 8 p.m.). Please email jonesquints@yahoo.com if there are even two hours during the week that you can help out.

Also, if you know any lovely people who might be interested in working with five adorable, active, endearing babies, we're happy to consider them!

Without two morning and two afternoon volunteers, there just isn't enough time for me to keep up with the necessary day-to-day house/bills/paperwork/email/Isaac responsibilities, doctor appointments, and working with Seth, much less taking care of the other four, even when Samantha is working with the babies too. Since we're down to only one overnight and one early morning volunteer I am finding it difficult to get the sleep I need to have the energy for the "constantness" of each new day. It's lovely when we have two morning volunteers allowing me to go back to bed! The babies cry to be held when they see me, so it really helps me to leave the house to get things done and preserve my mental health.

Seth's feeding and physical therapy requirements are becoming more obviously critical. He is falling further and further behind the other kiddos (largely in core muscle and arm strength), and Grace also needs therapy to help her learn to sit. [The other three are sitting now, and David is even managing to "creep" and is pulling to standing so he can root around in his toy bin!]

Gavin is currently away, flying for our organization. He will be gone other times this summer and fall as well, a GOOD thing which I wholeheartedly support! I'm so glad he's back in the helicopter doing what he loves. I am also doing what I love, only I'm not able to do it by myself or even with the presently scheduled volunteers (who also get sick, have last-minute emergencies, and their own pressing family and work responsibilities, further diminishing the workforce). Thanks to those who already help make sanity and sleep possible, and thank you to those who think you might be able to join the Quintessential Team. :) If you have been thinking of coming aboard, now is a great time!

Love in Christ,

Gavin, Carrie, Isaac, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, & Grace Jones
