The caretaker was left feeling wronged because she did nothing wrong. The children didn't know what was happening, and wondered how they could have done something so wrong that they lost their home.
They spent several days at the Receiving Home, where they were treated very well, and overcame their fears. They went to court and heard things they didn't need to hear, emotions they weren't prepared to witness, and about a dozen people they had never seen before.
They thought I could save them, but it was all a part of a process they had no control over. They were sent to a foster home, and again felt abandoned and unloved. Again, they were blessed to have absolutely wonderful foster parents.
Finally, we got through all the hoops, survived the necessary steps and they were sent to live with us until their caretaker could get her foster license.
Foster parents, I am reminded once again how important you are, and the work you do to mend a broken, wounded heart and mind is beyond anything the government could actually pay you for. I think you will agree, it is worth it for the children.
