My husband and I fostered for a number of years …16 children ranging from a newborn to a 16 year old to her 5 month old failure to thrive baby. At one point had 3 car seats so had to get a bigger car! We finally decided we had to get a ‘keeper’ to counteract the pain of fosters leaving. At 50 years old, my husband and I ended up adopting two babies (18 month old and newborn siblings). We chose to not have an open adoption because of the scary, drug riddled lifestyle of the biological mother and her family. We have been open and honest with the information should they ever decide to look her up. Thank you so much for Rock Needs River…felt your pain and joy. Our kids are now in college (son premed to be a psychiatrist – daughter in the Navy). I dare anyone to say we feel less than birth parents do. A fabulous journey..
So moving and fabulous. I wish you so much joy. You are amazing
Thank you so much!
I just finished your book in one day!!! I am visiting my 22 year old adopted child in Oregon for a week. I adopted her at 7 weeks as a foster child. Her birth parents were IV drug users. She was their fourth child to be removed from their custody. She has had some health issues, do to the drug use, but, I could not imagine my life without her in it. I also have three older biological children. I feel the love for this child every bit as I do for all of my children. I
Blessings to you and all your children. xo
