JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Karen Smith was seven-months pregnant in July and walking the aisles of the wholesale store Costco when she received the call.
The voice on the phone said she and her family were no longer on the waiting list and had been accepted in the Navy Exceptional Family Member Respite Care Program.
“I broke down crying in the Costco,” she said, “because it meant that God did answer my prayer.”
