Happy February, and Happy Superbowl Sunday! Has anyone else been cooking finger foods for the past 3 hours? There's only 10 minutes until kickoff!
This morning, I was looking through some pictures on my phone, and I found one that made me laugh. I wanted to share it here for two reasons. One, I thought other people might get a laugh as well. Two, I wanted to discuss it in reference to foster care.
Well as funny as it was to find such an array of toys in an adult's bag, I wanted to talk about toys on a more serious note. A lot of kids in foster care don't have toys to call their own. Many times, whatever siblings I already had and I would need to pick a bunch of toys to give to the new kid before we could get to a store to buy them their own toys. It's important for kids in the foster system to have things that they can call their own, and my mom always likes to buy some kind of cuddly baby doll or stuffed animal for each child to cuddle and sleep with because that gives them something they can form an attachment with.
Toys may seem silly to adults, but to a child with nothing, it can mean the entire world.
