We got our first foster care call last week!
It was a respite (short term) placement for a baby girl.
We took care of a smoochy, sweet 8-month-old for 4 days.
It was a perfect first fostering experience for us.
We got a call the other day for a 5-month-old baby girl,
but had to turn it down due to pending illness in our home.
More on that later.
Also, my sweet friends threw me a surprise foster shower Wednesday night.
I had no clue...as indicated by my dinner party appearance:
(Thanks, Jennifer, for the picture!)
Go here to see the rest of the pictures.
My friends are amazing.
So incredibly thoughtful.
I was in tears...and that's not an easy thing to do. :)
