Yesterday was National Poetry Day, so we are a little late to the party! But we wanted to share this heartwarming fostering poem with you that was passed on to us by one of our lovely foster carers. In her own words, “It just says it all.” And we agree! Have a read of the fantastic fostering poem below:Be careful they told me,
You might get hurt.
I was surprised by the unkind words
So many people would blurt.
‘Can’t you have kids… you know, ones of your own?’
‘If you adopt from foster care they’ll have issues when they’re grown.’
‘I could never foster; my heart is too big…’
‘I could never let them go.’
Those words cut and dig.
So let me get this straight, you have a big heart?
Too big to love a child, and give them a good start?
I’m sorry; you’ve got it wrong… you’re sadly mistaken.
To love a child is a miraculous thing
It’s an unimaginable blessing that fostering brings.
Of course it would hurt to let go or say goodbye.
