Foster Care Children Need Suitcases

Do you know that most foster children carry their children in just a garbage bag? I cannot even imagine being removed from my family, let alone having to carry my things in a garbage bag. What does such an action say about who you are? If you have an extra suitcase or duffle bag, why not find a foster care agency in your area or your state's department of child services and see if they will accept a donation. Most will be happy for your donation.

Sometimes making a difference in the world isn't changing the course of a river, but making it possible for someone else to navigate it.

I've heard this before and found it very sad. Thanks for the reminder. I'll be sure to get any extras we have to the appropriate agency.
Sounds as if the fostering application process is going well for you.

Today we were fingerprinted. Thursday is our last training class. We still have to make it through the home study and then onto the ups and downs that you are experiencing. We are saying our prayers.
