Well my dear, I believe that you are the foster care equivalent of an unexpected pregnancy. This morning I was emailed a new referral, and within two hours you were on my doorstep. I know you don’t want to be adopted, but I hope you’ll be a part of our family all the same.
You’ve had a pretty tough time, and I hope that by showing up on my doorstep things will start looking up. I hope that when you leave, whenever that may be, you are better for having been with us. I hope that I can learn to love you as my own, and that you will learn to let yourself be loved.
Whatever happens, I bet it won’t be boring!
