There are no words

There really are no words to describe just how hurt I have been in the last few weeks. This foster care thing is no joke. Anything can happen. The children can be taken away from you at any time with little or no warning. No goodbyes. Sleepless nights. Tear stained pillows. Broken hearts, and shattered reputations.

It all comes with the territory, but it's hard.  So hard that it makes me want to quit. It makes me want to give up and turn my back on a broken system that is only hurting the children more.

I don't understand why these things have happened, and I'm not sure I ever will.

I keep trying to keep busy, to keep my mind off of the last two weeks, but I can't.

I. Just. Can't.


  1. You are so right, it is SO hard, there seems to be a lot of that going around these days. Stay strong.

  2. I am also a young foster mom and single. I fear this moment too. Praying for you.
