Love and Hope....not Fear.

Are you afraid of being a foster parent because you might have to say goodbye to a child you have grown to love?
If you answered Yes to this question YOU are needed!
It needs to hurt when they leave, it means you did it right!
Even though it hurts...and hurts and hurts, you will get through it and you will be able to love deeper than before.
You will survive!
I know because I did.
Don't let fear stand in the way of your hopes.
If you want to adopt and feel foster care is the way then get started today!
If you care about children and want to help...don't wait, there is a child who needs what you have to give!
The following is a blog post from my personal blog during a painful time.
I share it with you in hopes you can see that even with the pain there is hope and healing.

"If you're listening, if you're awake to the poignant beauty of the world, your heart breaks regularly. In fact, your heart is made to break; its purpose is to burst open again and again so that it can hold ever more wonders."
~ Andrew Harvey

I miss this sweet baby!
I read this quote yesterday as I sat in a class at the Utah Foster Care Foundation in SL County.
I thought of Ashanti...and I realized there are so many things that make me think of her. She has impacted my life in a way no one else could!
I am doing better...but I really miss her!
The nice thing....hope has regained my heart.
I love Hope!
