“The licensing worker was here this morning for a scheduled visit. They asked us if we would ever think of fostering again.”
This was the text my brother and I received from my sister shortly after noon today.
My sister fostered a nonverbal autistic boy named David last year in April. In June, she started dating an old friend, Jim. In October they were engaged. In February, Jim moved in with her and David. And today…
“We said yes.”
Tomorrow, Ethan, a six year old boy will meet his new foster family. Talk about a whirlwind year.
I don’t know how she does it. She’s a full time administrator, planning a wedding, taking care of a very active child, and is so welcoming to readily accept another foster child into her life.
What a year it’s been for her, and what a future it will be!
