Am I the Freak of Foster Care Land?
When I talk about the relationships that I have with my kiddos and their families, most people tend to stare at me jaws dropped and eyes wide in a way that makes me thing I must have sprouted a third eyeball in the middle of my forehead or something. Is it really that unheard of to have great relationships with your kids and their families after foster care, or am I just the freak of Foster Care Land?
It's all good though. If being able to grow my family in ways I never imagined makes me a freak, I'll gladly take it! I can only pray that I continue to hit the jackpot with my kids' families and that whatever I am doing to build these lasting relationships continues with any new children who come into my life. This is how foster care should look! Because children can never have too many people who love them...
