Gratitude day 6

Man, what a crazy couple of days it has been! I’ve been over at a friends house babysitting their kids and foster kids overnight last night so they could have a getaway.

I also babysit another couple with foster kids, and when I lived in Nebraska, I had another family that I babysat for that had small foster children as well as teenage foster children.

It got me to thinking today. It really does take a special person/couple/family to take in children that are not your own. These are children that were removed from their own homes due to their parents inability to care for them, or in a lot of cases, abuse is a factor in their removal from their home.

So today I am thankful for all you foster families out there. You deserve so much more than a thank you. Thanks to you, children are not in an environment that is unsafe or unhealthy.
