Being Human

Thank you for all your kind comments and emails from Sunday's post. Ya'll are just too sweet.

However, I do want to set the record straight.

As saintly as I may of come off, that's certainly not the case. We do our very best to be compassionate, understanding and "team players" but believe you me, I can get very upset. My blood pressure boils when idiotic drama occurs, social workers turn a blind eye and the politics of the system that manage to grind everything to a halt. Above all, what absolutely slays me is what our kiddos endured at the hands of the people that should always of been their greatest protectors.

THAT burns me right up.

Needless to say, I'm far from perfect.. like.. light years away. And then some. What keeps us plugging along is the tenacity, sweet innocence, strength, appreciation, sense of humor and moxie shown by the little angels we are blessed to know. They are my heroes and make me strive to be a better person.

Every.Single.Day.

Of course your blood boils when you think about all that. What makes you special is that you are able to help these wonderful little ones despite the havoc it wreaks with your emotions.

My grandparents were foster parents for many years despite their own 11 children and my grandmother always spoke of the horrible injustices that those poor sweet children had to live with. That was why she did it. She, too, was human.

And like you, she was extraordinary!

I don't think you would be a good foster parent if those things didn't upset you. That's why we enter into this place in the first place - for the sake of the kids.
You are an amazing person, and its God's grace that made you that way, and His grace that gets you through the hard times.

I've heard even the best of angels have blood that boils...sometimes!

Glad to hear that you are an angel...and human too!
