Have I mentioned I am totally and helplessly in love with this child, unlike any of the child we have ever had except the ones we have now? She is only here for three days, but I will soak in every moment of all three of them!
I cry like nothing else when this one leaves, every single time. Each time I thought it was the last time I would ever see her, and I tried to dismiss our connection to simply being those nights we shared in the hospital for several weeks when we first got her. That’s the worst part of fostering, though, the gut-wrenching, heart-breaking repeated goodbyes. But a goodbye always means we at least got to say hello, right? I love her!
