My next two placements stayed just long enough to break my heart. One was a 3 month old red haired beauty with a twinkle in her eye. She stayed for 14 days. Next came a handsome one-month-old Native American boy who left after 10 days. They came just long enough for my heart to grab hold. Every child who has come into my home has stolen a piece of my heart. Whether they were here for ten days, four months, or get to stay forever; they change me. People have said they were blessed to have me; the truth is I am blessed to love each of them even if for just a short time.
