i finally got up the courage...

i finally got up the courage to put up Baby J's hand/footprint. we do one for all the kids that come through our home, so we have a reminder of them with us always.

it's just about two months since baby j left our family. i still cry at the mention of his name. i'm not sure if thats normal. my kids are still hurting and that hurts my heart.

we received a drawing from him via his therapist. i was half expecting it to tell me how much he was mad at me, but alas it was just his name written 33 times.

i miss him. i dont know when it will stop.


  1. My heart feels for you and your 'ohana....i cant even imagine...but time has its way! Just time! Love u guys! Xoxo

  2. I hurt for you. I would still be crying.

  3. It's normal. I want to cry just thinking about you crying. Sending love and prayers your way.

  4. Big hugs from the ocean and back!

  5. I know that it hurts, but I want to thank you for giving our most defenseless kids a safe place to stay, even if only for a little while. Our world needs more people like you in it!

  6. So identify with you even though we ended up adopting our only foster placement thus far. I often wondered how I would survive if he left our home.

  8. That's normal to grieve!! Fostering is hard. God bless you for hanging in there. Blessings - another from another fostermom in the trenches.angela

  9. I know it hurts, but you should feel pride in your grief. That you feel so bad now is a sign that Baby J got all the love he needed while he stayed with you. My wife and I know how you feel, all too often. But we keep saying yes everytime the phone rings! hang in there!

  10. I'm so sorry for your pain. I'm thinking about you today and praying for you.
