The Heart Of A Foster Mother, A Poem

A foster mother may not be the person who was always be there for a child, but she is there to offer love, encouragement, and safety during one of the most challenging experiences in a little person’s life. A lot of people say they couldn’t bear to be a foster parent because they wouldn’t want to get attached to a child just to have to say good-bye . . . but the truth is, it’s those people who would make the BEST foster parents. Because what a child in foster care needs the most is a sense of love and stability, an adult they know they can rely on and trust through thick and thin.

I love this poem!
