Today was a pretty good day all around. I feel like I use this blog to vent sometimes, but I need to record the good things that happen as well.
The same goes for children in foster care. I've said it before, and I'll say it a million times more. If you give up on these children because they're "in the system" and "no one cares about them," then you have no business being a foster parent. You should be the one who won't give up on them, who teaches them that they can do anything and become anyone that they want to be. As the foster parent, or foster sibling, or the friend of a foster child in some way, you are the advocate that these foster children need so they know that they matter in this world.
On another note, I was pleasantly surprised to come home from school and find out that my littlest sister is somewhat able to hear! I don't even remember how long it's been since she first got the double ear infection and got so much fluid in her ears that she couldn't hear anymore. It's been constant signing and yelling directly into her ear, so it was great to have a conversation where she knew exactly what I was saying for once. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that her hearing only improves from here!
I hope your day was as good as mine was!
