In ten short days…

In ten short days, I will drive them to court.

In ten short days, we will have an answer of some sort.

In ten short days, I will have no say.

In ten short days, I may have to give them away.

In ten short days, my days with them may be numbered.

In ten short days, all of the options will be covered.

In ten short days, my heart may break.

In ten short days, I don’t know how much I’ll be able to take.

In ten short days, I will be brave for them.

In ten short days, it will happen then.

In ten short days, a decision will be made.

In ten short days, the future for these babies will be be decided.

In ten short days, a courtroom possibly divided.

If only, if only we could all do what is best for them.

Jesus Christ, I pray to you right now for peace for all… Amen!

  1. As a foster mom, I never get used to the conflicted feelings I have when it comes to my kids. Loving their presence in my life but knowing that they’re here because of trauma in their lives, wanting them to stay but grieving for the inability of their biological family to be the family they deserve…ambivalence is a near-constant companion some days. My heart is with you.
