Today we went to the Foster Family Picnic for the last time, and were able to say good bye to some of the wonderful people who have impacted our lives over the past eighteen years! We had a really nice time there, although after the fun in the sun, I'm exhausted!
Just as we expected., there was the usual bounce house for the kids, and the sheriffs came by with the police dogs. My mom's cousin was there with his band to entertain everyone, and our family friends were there to enjoy the day as a first time foster family. There were hot dogs, hamburgers, cookies, and ices. It was a beautiful day, and I'm glad that we went!
We saw the twins' caseworker, who was helping out by grilling up food for everyone, so it was nice to talk to her again. She was surprised at how big the girls were... she was working with us when they were still babies, maybe a year or two years old. Now they're five and a half, and while they're still small for their age, they have overcome so many obstacles and have grown so much.
We also saw the woman who placed each of my siblings in our home. She's the woman who made all of the phone calls to my mom, asking if we could take in a child. She's the only reason why I had each of my siblings; she made those calls to my mom and not someone else, and there are no words to describe how grateful we all are for that.
