It's worth it- why we foster

"Reason Number 389:

Because even after all of this,

it is still worth it.

Because even with all of the challenges we will

still do everything in our power to make sure the boys

know that we will always love them.

Because even after all of the unknown, and the hurt

it is worth every tear.

Because even the hard goodbyes only mean

we’ve loved each other well.

Because it is worth it.

And they are worth it.

And even when things get really tough, and you can’t really

remember why you do all of this,

God whispers in my heart,

There are more.

And they need you.

And they need to know my love.

And it is worth it."

Wow...so powerful. We use to be foster parents. We are feeling the nudge again. Sometimes I wonder if it is worth it. What a beautiful reminder that it IS!!!
