We are also taking a break from being a foster family. Our last placement left mid-June. There are too many emotions and thoughts to put down regarding this placement. It was tough, yet a blessing all the same. Again, we learned a lot about ourselves as individuals and as a family unit. We realized how strong we could be, were reminded how manipulative others can be, and in the end we were able to cling to our faith and each other.
As much as I hate to say it, school will start back up again. Vacation time will be over and we will be back into life. Things will be a bit different this year as I have one heading off to high school, one in middle school, and one still in elementary school. With the transitions we will wait and discern our next move with a foster placement.
However, in the meantime, it's pool time, vacation time, meal planning time, project time, and just hanging out time.
