That is a beautiful thing to see. I would love to foster, in a heartbeat. Before I met my Fiance, I was planning on adopting alone. I hope one day we can reach a point in our lives where fostering is an option.

My daughter was adopted from foster care- I consider her to extremely lucky because she came to us at 9 days old and never left. Her birthmother had a terrible history with CPS so it was a pretty easy case. I know what her life could have been like, and it breaks my heart to think about it.

I spent many days at Child Haven watching kids come in with police from horrible situations and it never gets any easier. One memory that is burned into my brain was 2 little boy- probably ages 7 and 5 came in in filthy dirty pajamas and dirth slippers full of holes. They just shuffled along- they looked so lost. I’ve seen kids come into foster care with trash bags full of all they own- it’s literally the saddest thing I have ever seen. This letter is so true- this kids just want love and basic things. Anyone who is thinking of fostering I urge you to, it’s so rewarding.

That post broke my heart.  Darling Husband and I are making some major life changes right now, so that in a year or so we can hopefully be in the position to become foster parents, with the hope of adopting.  Thank you for posting this!
