We have a couple coming in a couple of hours to meet Silk. As always, it remains to be seen whether this is his forever family having finally found him but leading up to these meet n' greets one just never knows so we remain hopeful. I know I'm going to sound like a broken record here but I will so miss him. So cuddly and loving, he's gravitated toward me since I've spoiled and fussed over him (as I tend to do with fosters) but this is the nature of foster work and as I've said before, it remains a role that has both positives and difficulties.

What remains most important however is that he have his forever home and that we are able to then offer this same safe space to another who also needs that second chance. I remind myself of this constantly and also that nothing worth having is ever completely easy.


  1. You were such a great foster parent to my Holmes! He received so much love and good care. He is a wonderful boy and I love him dearly. Thank you so much!!!

  2. LM -- what happened with the meet and greet ?? was it a good fit?? you are the best foster mom ever ... and take great joy in knowing that you are helping the most vulnerable of God's treasures
