We said, "we couldn't be foster parents because we could never deal with loving a child and then giving them up."
I laugh about that now because we are currently in process of training to become foster parents.
They said, "we're going to tell you the horrible things these kids go through, what it's like to be them, so you know what to expect, so you're equipped to deal."
And they do.
I think it's been every week that I've thought OMG I didn't know what I was getting myself into! Every week, I think that the foster system needs many, many more loving people involved in it, and I'm pretty sure me and my boys are supposed to be some of those people.
I have a lot to say and a lot to process.
I have a lot of interests, a lot of feelings; I am an all over the place kind of person. It's why I've never really been able to stick to one topic on this blog.
But I think I'm about to enter the all about family/fostering/adoption portion of my blogging life. I have lot of posts to catch up on, but right now I'm wondering....do you have any questions for me, related to the process?
Be back soon. Even if I can only carve out 5 minutes in a day, I think writing about the way my family is about to grow is something I need and want right now.
