what do they expect when they place a 4lb 26week, sick premie in your care...that you won't attach and bond and love. a friend of mine was told that her family was too attached to the child they've had in their home for 9 months. are you serious? because they have toys for him? because he feels like it's him home? because he feels he has a family?
when our daughter was a foster child we were discouraged from giving her a 1st birthday party. why? because she's not our kid. then what's the point of foster homes? why dont we just place them in a hole where they never attach to anyone. in the end i did what was in the best interest of her. a party. so she could have photos, and know she was loved from the beginning of her life. image that...being loved in foster care.
these foster children DESERVE to have a family. even if it's a temporary family. a mom, dad, sisters, brothers, rules, parties, toys, and everything that comes with it. our foster babies deserve to NEVER know the drama and and politics that surrounds them.
so make up your mind CPS, do you or dont you want me to make my foster children feel at home?
