Today's the day we say goodbye to our foster son. We got him last July and as of 6pm tonight, he goes to be with his father. The joy he brought us is immeasurable. As is the pain in giving him up. Don't know if we'll be able to do this again.

Man, that has got to be tough. :blue:

It feels like he died even though he's in his room taking a nap. The painful part is that he is in no way better off with his father than with us. Even worse than that, chances are he'll be back with his mother.

I can't imagine how this baby feels being bounced around from one home to the next.

Kudos to you for being a foster parent -- gotta be one of the most challenging things an adult can do, but then also the flip side is often true, which is what you're expressing. :Flag2:

God Bless you & your wife for opening up your hearts & home to provide a safe secure & loving enviornment for the children that need that.

I am sure the joy of receiving the little ones into your heart & home is tempered by the sorrow of seeing them go.

I feel for you and I will keep you and him and your family in my prayers.

Well, he's now gone. Our house feels so empty. I'm not going into his room for a while. Too painful. Thanks for all the well wishes.
