A beautiful post by Fostermama

I love this post. Here is just one quote. You'll have to go to her site to read the rest:

In foster parenting, the need is greater than most. A child enters your home
with a NEED for a stable loving parent to help them heal and grow. "Oh I could
NEVER do that" Yes, you could...if you were personally touched by someone in
need, you would do whatever you could to help. It's easy to say no to an
abstract concept but not when it is sad, big brown eyes looking at you. If you
feel qualified to parent a child, you're probably qualified to foster a child.
It is an emotional rollercoaster and it isn't for everyone. The need is greater,
the problems are bigger, but the love is the same.
