What is your favorite part about being a foster parent?
There are a lot of things to not like about the foster system. It’s filled with over-worked case workers, slow paperwork, and lots of waiting. However, it is also filled with children who need loving homes, if even for a short time.
Those kids come to stay with us. And that’s my favorite part.
My favorite part is having the kind of home that has room for one more. Having the kind of hearts that have room for one more.
When a child is brought into our home, something changes. Our house becomes a reprieve for a child. Two days of what we consider to be normal meals, normal bath times, normal sleep habits, normal play time. Some kids need normal for just a few days. And if I can be that normal for them, I welcome that. That makes it all worth it.
On Thursday, I’ll be answering a few more questions that I’ve gotten throughout this series. If you have a question you’d like for me to answer, leave it in the comments or send me an email!
