Two of my closest friends received the news that they would be getting new additions to their families this weekend. One friend now has a four year old, two and a half year old and a 9 month old. The other has a preemie born at just 24 weeks, who was just released from the hospital after being there for months. I’m so excited for my friends. There are so many children in our state that need loving families to come along side biological families and take care of their children while these bio families figure things out. Sometimes they need treatment of some kind or must serve jail time or perhaps just need to become stabilized on some meds. Whatever the reason, they need help. My friends are the moms who will mother these precious children until their biological families can take care of them again. It’s a big job. A tough job. They will become attached to these babies and then have to let go. But, it’s worth it. These mamas are brave mamas and they are two of my heroes!
