journaling my life as a single adoptive/foster mommy so I can share our life and remember these things when I am old.
Friday, June 17, 2011
I have been a foster parent for 12 years. In those 12 years I have had 17 children come into my home. Some of them for a few weeks, some for a few months, or a year and three forever. I miss some of them so much and I think I always will. I haven't had a placement for about 9 months, which has been ok since I have been busy with school and work and life in general. I have been saying for the past year or so that when my license came up for renewal that I wouldn't renew. Well guess what? My license expires this fall. Guess what else. I am renewing my license. I just don't feel like I am done being a foster parent. I want more children in my house. My kids (the little ones) love it when new kids come to play. I also have recently found this amazing online group of foster parent bloggers and I have been so relieved to find in them a kindred spirit. Someone who has been in the same trenches as me. Finally, I feel like it is my way to serve God. I can't do much, but I can love on his children. So, I am going back into the trenches of foster care. Stay tuned for related news
I'm a very busy mommy of three beautiful adopted children. My big girl, my little man and princess monkeybutt are my world. Adoption has become my passion and I do whatever I can to be an advocate for foster children and adopted children. I love my family and we are loving God, loving each other and making life up as we go along!
