I do not often reblog posts…especially to my Nine Year Pregnancy Blog. But this is such a beautiful letter (a bit long, but worth the read). It was compiled and based on actual conversations with children in foster care. Thank you BarrenToBlessed for sharing this on WordPress!
Dear Future Adoptive Parents,
Hello. I’m not sure what to say except that I hope you want me as bad as I want you. I need you to need me. I know that sounds silly, coming from a kid and all, but if I were to be completely honest, I would tell you how desperately I long for a family, a mother, a father….anyone….anyone who will stick with me.
It’s hard, you know…growing up in foster care. I’ve been through so many foster homes that I have lost count. Honestly, I barely remember what my birth parents were like. I remember their struggles, and I remember their ignorance of me, but I scour my mind over and over in an attempt to remember the parts of them that were loving, kind, and made me feel special.
Dear future Mamma, I wish that one day I will find myself twirling my fingers…
