My role as a foster parent has been on my mind a lot the past few days. While I do not currently have any placements I am blessed to be a mentor and journey along with other foster parents in their experiences. I am amazed at the similarities in all of our feelings. We all feel overwhelmed. We all feel scared. We all wonder if we are doing it right or if there is someone else that would be better for them. We get tired. We feel lonely. We feel inadequate. It is normal. Each of us has our own reason for doing this work and I can tell you that for me, while it is soooooo hard at times I do not regret any of it.
