i am a foster child...

Do you know a foster child?

I know a few ...

There is one in particular who has been on
my mind and in my heart these days.
I'm sure her story is similar to many others,
and it breaks my heart to think about her!
Tonight I told my own little girls
how happy I was they were able to live in our house with me.
They had no idea what I was really talking about, but went ahead and agreed with me!
What I was really talking about is how sometimes I take all that I have for granted...
then I am reminded during my work day that a lot of kids only wish
for a portion of the things I take for granted :(
How selfish of me!
And so.... here is another I AM POEM ...
