I just wanted to let all the members out there know that I am a sponsor parent, and I've had two classes graduate. I have dealt with a lot of situations, both good and bad. When I first came on this forum and signed up in May, I ended up having some other issues going on and completely went offline for a couple months. I am back on, & I apologize for taking some time off. If you have any questions that deal with being a sponsor parent, I will do my best to answer any questions anyone has. Like I mentioned before, if I do not know the answer, I will research it, and find out the best answer to help you. I love being a sponsor parent, and it is a very rewarding experience, not just for the cadet, but also for the sponsor parents. I do keep private pages that I use only for my cadets, and I also keep a private page that only the parents can go on to. This is where I post information that I need to get to everybody at the same time, and it is the only place I will post any photos I take, to not only protect the cadets, but myself. I feel it is very important that I not post any private information or photos that can be seen by anyone on social media. Both my kids and their parents know that once the information or photos is on the private site, it become their property, and they can pull the pictures off, post them or do whatever they would like with them. If I can be of any assistance, I will do my best to help anyone that asks me for help. And as I previously stated, if I do not know the answer, I will research it for you. I'm very honored and very proud to be a sponsor parent, and I thank the parents for putting their trust in me to take care of their kids during their time at the Academy. Some of the parents have become some of my best friends. I'm also looking forward to the day when some of my kids get married, and start a family. I don't see being a sponsor parent as just something to get the kids through the 4 years, but a lifetime commitment. There are so many wonderful sponsor families out there, and I'm honored to be one.
