The difference between this couple and some of their more fastidious contemporaries was that they were willing to view the house with the renters inside it. It was not a comfortable situation, but they went through with it. The woman who lived there was a foster mother with one teenage daughter and five foster children. The foster mother was from Port Arthur, she told the couple. Now that the house was up for sale she might go back to Port Arthur, except that she had all these kids. She didn’t know what she would do.
