I am a foster mother. I love the job very much, however I have heard the news I was dreading to hear today. My foster son who is almost 9 and mentally retarded is going to go back home in about 6 months or so. Unfortunatly it’s one of those situations where the judge says go back home even though there are still major problems that are unaddressed.:crying: I know that as a foster parent it is my job to help reunify the parent and child. I am trying to remember that, but it is very hard. He came to me as a severe behavior problemed child now his bad behaviors are gone and he is doing wonderful. I just worry that he will go back home and all that we’ve done to help him will go out the window. So I am asking for two sets of prayers here. First and most important is that NO MATTER where this child ends up going or staying that he will be okay and that God will remain in his life. The second is for myself that I can let all my worries and concerns go to God where they need to be and that I can be positive with the transition from my home to his mother’s house, if all goes according to plan.
Thank you very much!!!
