On May 9th, we received a call asking us to take in two little girls as a foster placement.
After almost 3 months in our home and lives, they will be leaving. They will not be returning to mom and dad, but will go live with grandma.
I have a ton of mixed emotions about this move, many are selfish, but some are legitimate concerns. Still, I have to hold on to the hope that all will work out well for these little ones and that we’ve been a positive influence in their young lives.
Sometime between Tuesday and Thursday, their case worker will come to pick them up and take them to grandma. Until then, we will continue to love and care for them
We will miss them dearly and cherish the time we’ve had with them, then sadly, it won’t be long after that our agency calls us with another placement. Once again we will be caring for children who need a safe and loving environment while their parents work on challenges in their own lives.
This is the life of foster families and foster children across America and as much as I wish there was no need for foster care, I’m happy we are able to be one of the thousands of homes for these children.
