We really want to foster at least one more time. We would really love to adopt again as well, if the right situation presented itself. But, we sit and we wait and we don’t get calls.
Every time that I hear a commercial on the radio asking for people to step up and become foster parents, I just want to yell at my dashboard. Every time I see an ad describing the huge need for foster parents and adoptive parents in our state, I want to throw my shoe at the screen! I want to yell, “what about the homes you already have? How about use those!!!” Because, out of the last 2 years and 10 months since we became foster parents, our home has sat empty a combined total of ten months. Ten months where we have had three empty beds, ten months we have had a huge Suburban with empty seats, ten months I’ve sat and wondered why? Tonight, I sit and wonder why, again.
(On a positive note, we go to pick up T for a long weekend tomorrow. He’ll get to spend five days with us and we are all very excited!)
