Fostering UNITY

This week has been crazy already and it’s only Tuesday. Between training for work, assisting my nephew with his virtual learning and make sure my foster kiddo does her stuff on time….I didn’t get to eat lunch until after 3:30p. When I signed up to work for Fostering UNITY, I didn’t know my kiddo would come back to me. Now I almost feel like I bit off more than I can chew. But if other people can do it, so can I!! I’m sure in 2 weeks after trainings are over, I will feel much better.

Regardless of how overwhelming everything seems right now, I am beyond ecstatic to work with this group of amazing people.

If you are or about to become a foster parent in Los Angeles County, please join this group and you will see what I am raving about!

Helping others

As I go through these awkward days of COVID19 and grieving for a foster child departing, I continuing to search for my purpose. I really enjoy helping people and I would love to be of use to others. Currently I found an exciting opportunity that I will share in detail once I have complete the entire on boarding process. What I can say is that, I continue to be amazed by all the wonderful resource families out there. And that I drive to help may have found a good place to be of use.

If you know of any resource families that may need help in LA County, please spread the word about CARE line!

Goodbye

This was it, time to say goodbye. I did not know how hard it was going to be. My lungs feel like flattened balloons and that I had bricks on my chest.

How a little five year old changed our world in three short months, I would never have thought possible.

I will never forget you….

Her Last Week

Too many emotions, too much going on. My shoulders are constantly sore now and my back really needs an adjustment.

We wish she wasn’t leaving but sadly it’s not up to us. Hope she knows we truly love her and that she retained anything positive we taught her during her short stay with us. Hope we will really keep in touch and that she’s happy.

I wish I could share her photos and show the world how infectious her smile is.

First few days….

Sometimes we just can’t help to have certain expectations of things, even we know not to. During the first few days, there were many ups and downs. Overall, things were not disastrous. However, there is always something that we did not expect or mentally prepare for.
