“You’re an angel from heaven…” “You’re such a strong woman…” “I could never do what you do…” “There’s a special place in heaven for people like you…”
Just a few of the flattering remarks I’ve heard. Ever since we said, “I DO”, to becoming foster parents. Honestly? I thought, at the very least, I was a strong woman. Maybe, even a strong Christian. Until I became a foster parent.
Hi Friends. I’m happy to announce the arrival of our newest foster baby! Baby Boy BLUE. I feel like God has been very gracious and merciful in giving us this precious gift to love, right now. I was starting to believe God had completely abandoned me. (I’ll get to this, later.)
I’ve had many devastating occurrences in my adult years. Most recently, I lost a foster child, after raising her for her first two years of life. I knew, going into fostering, the risk of getting my heart broken. But, NOTHING can prepare you for the pain of watching a child, whom you’ve mothered and nurtured from the beginning, being forced to transition out of your life.
Dear Friend, it’s been a while
Sorry- been keeping to myself.
There’s just only part of me
that I want you to see.
And, sometimes it’s too hard to be around.
Hello there, don’t mind me
Sorry- tryin to feel myself again.
At times I just don’t know
Who I am or where to go.
And, sometimes it’s too much to understand.
Dear Honey Bear,
It’s been a few weeks since you left us. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. Thanksgiving has come and gone. I was thankful for so much. But, I also felt sad. I don’t know where you spent your holiday. I don’t know if your new placement suits you better. I can only hope.
I am so happy to announce my next Facebook LIVE Video Series. Beginning next week! This time, it’s going to be all LE Woman content.
