With grocery shopping, pumpkin carving, dinner-making, and movie-watching, Sunday got away from me quicker than I was expecting. So, here’s the post I should have posted yesterday for One True Sentence. Click on any photo for the full image and words.
October 13: At a time when many couples are talking about when to begin having children, we glimpsed behind the curtain of foster care and discovered thousands of children in need of a family.
October 14: After our first fostering experience, we knew we wanted to foster again in the future.
October 15: But like many newly-married couples, we thought the ‘right’ way to bring children into our family was to have biological kids first and open our home to foster children once our own children were a bit older. (Side note: We would have made adorable babies together.)
October 16: The trouble was we didn’t want biological kids.
October 17: It looked like we’d never be parents.
October 18: Then, a few months before I turned twenty-four, I surrendered to the impulse to send off for information from a local foster care agency.
October 19: A few weeks after the brochures arrived, we were in training to become foster parents.
