Birthday Best (on foster parenting)

November 8, 2011

For my birthday today, Charlie and Elisabeth picked out cards for me at Target.  Elisabeth’s featured two bears and said: “Mommy, It’s Your Birthday and I Love You!”   Charlie’s featured two monkeys gazing at each other from the treetop and said: “To My Wonderful Husband, the Man I’ll Always be BANANAS About!”  While I loved both cards, my favorite card was handmade, from J.

It said:


You are the friend to my ship.

You are the kind to my ness.

You are the foster to my mom.

And I Love you.

Happy Birthday Lucy.


I’ll treasure it forever.

    Oh God…I’m a long-time foster Mom – well, we are long time foster moms – and you got me going. I’m a longtime lurker here, too, but I delurk for foster parents. Hurray to you, thank goodness she has you. These kids break out hearts a million times over, but they are so worth every tear. Bless you all.
