Fostering...

We have officially transitioned from rescuing animals to rescuing Children. We finally took in our first foster children on June 19th, they're 2 boys ages 21 months old and 8 weeks old and I'm in love already. I wish I could post pictures and tell you all about them, unfortunately thats not allowed.

But I CAN tell you what I've discovered so far...
  • Pampers and all the other brands are aweful - gotta be Luvs or Huggies.
  • My house will never be as clean as I want it too.
  • To speak fluent toddlereese one must know the word "NO!"
  • I have now become one of those people you talk about in the store because of the tantrums the older one is capable of. **my personal favorite**
The older one went threw a few homes before he came to ours, I suspect he will work through some of his issues once he's had some time to adjust. In the meantime I am working at being consistent with discipline and lots of love.
Marty will be home in a couple weeks to meet them and I can't wait!
In the mean time wish me luck and come see us if you like!

Sounds like a good learning challenge. That's what our kids STILL are! You can call if you need to steam off.

Hi Kiana, Sarah told me the news yesterday. I am happy that you are taking this on. The foster system needs more Kiana's. Anyway, when my kiddos were in Diapers way back in the stone age, HUGGIES were my favorite too. I will be keeping you in my thoughts. Hope to see you one of these years. :-(
