Once you’re a foster parent you can never really go back to life as you knew it before. Now, you know. You know about children living in homes consumed with roaches, so many that they must slap themselves in their sleep to fight the bugs off. You know about children be choked and thrown against walls by their caregivers. You know about babies sitting in dirty diapers day after day until their bottoms are bloody. Now, you know. So, life kind of changes. You can’t go back to the days where your biggest worry was what kind of coffee drink you’ll order today. You just can’t. Because, now you know there are children living all around us suffering and they need our help!
Have you thought about foster care?
