Topsy-Turvy Weekend

This has been a truly topsy-turvy weekend and one of the most confusing times of my life. The three kids that we fostered are all gone - BOOM - at once. Lies were told against me (by my own child, no less!) and the two agencies involved couldn't get their acts together to benefit the kids, as usual, so they ran in and took the kids out without bothering to consider how it would affect them. Now I am left with empty arms and a broken heart.

One of these kids has been with us for 2 years and the other two have been here for 9 months -since the baby was three months old. In fact, this all happened on her first birthday. She got to spend it with strangers. Isn't that lovely?

We went into foster care because we have a great love for children. This is something we have been doing for the last 13+ years and have given our heart and home to over 25 children. In fact, we have encouraged many others to do the same. This was our mission. Now, we are being treated like dirt. Our reputation and history means nothing.

Sorry for the rant, but I am so disgusted with the way we have been treated.
