I just wrote about how difficult our very first “good bye” was, and I thought I should talk a little bit more about when we have to see a child leave our home.
The truth of the matter is, if you’re looking into becoming a foster family, you’re going to have your hearts broken. It’s going to happen multiple times. But that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the love and the children while they’re in your home, and you’ll have memories to keep you feeling great for the rest of your lives. The pros of doing foster care, like helping children in need and having a wonderful family, definitely outweigh the cons, namely being heartbroken when they leave. Look into becoming a foster family, and you’ll be absolutely glad you did.
