Diary of a Foster Parent
This is a video diary of my experience as a foster parent.
First I have to confess that if I didn't know me, seeing the title of this series, I'd assume I'm very churchy. I'd also assume that I dress badly - Like elastic waist jeans, a pastel t-shirt and sneakers. And that I don't have a killer themed Christmas party every year (last year, the 70's. The year before, Mad Men). I'd also think that I must have the patience of a saint, that kids are my whole life, and maybe I'd even assume that I have a really boring sex life.
I would think these things of someone who's a foster parent! I know I would!
Truth is, sometimes my kids drive me crazy. I love putting together a great outfit. I'm on the third book in the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy. I can't stand it when my kids talk during a really great song. My sex life is very high on my list of priorities. I just had a glass of wine and a chocolate croissant for dinner (my kids had a balanced meal). The point I'm trying to make here is I'm not Mother Theresa.
And also that I don't wear mom jeans.
And that I have sex.
Ok, um, so here's the first chapter in my diary....
Is opening your home to a foster child something you've thought about doing? Stay tuned as I share my journey...
