I should know better...

than to answer the phone after nine. A little baby boy is making his way to my house by way of a social worker. He needs foster parents. It's a crazy story not fit for a blog, but I hope this little 2-week old lands with his forever family soon! He'll probably only be with us for a couple of days.

    And pictures. I don't see how you do that, as you love children. It must be wrenching to let the little things leave after you've had them for a while. But I think it's wonderful that you do foster children. It's very special work.

    It's not hard to let them go, as there is never any opportunity for me to keep them. They just need some love while in transition. The only kids I foster are newborns who are in the process of adoption...if I have them then the birth mother is considering parenting herself, and needs some time. It's a very difficult time for all involved, adoptive parents who have been expecting the baby and the birthmother facing major decisions with postpartum hormone madness. And I get to hang out with a (usually) cute baby while his/her fate is decided. Weird world.

    Always a joy to read about your beautiful spirit that shows especially when you speak of these lovely transitional children.

    Many Blessings...
