Our first assignment as foster parents has come and gone, lasting only 5 days. It left my wife and I with a mixture of sadness, frustration, relief and joy. It’s also a reminder of what a difference just a few days can make on a person.
It’s an amazing thing to suddenly be aware that you are responsible for the well-being of another person. Even more amazing that you are doing it well after only 72 hours of being handed the responsibility. Night shift rounds are over. Tonight, our foster child is safe, still and dreaming well. A day well spent.
Our first foster placement has come and gone. Mom and daughter are happily reunited after five days in our care. Thank you all for the support you have given to Liz and I over the last crazy week.
