My heart breaks for any child who doesn’t have love, I never consider many don’t have a home…

Sitting at a park the other day my mother turns to me and says, “There are so many children Jodi who need foster homes. Some babies just need weekends to be held and rocked as they detox from addiction, I am thinking of taking some in”… I sat there quietly, perplexed… My heart breaks for any child who doesn’t have love, I never consider many don’t have a home. Almost 70, here is my mother, who has dedicated her life to early childhood for over 40 years, running a full time preschool in an inner city (while also struggling to take care of her own 4 children on two teacher salaries). My mother, who is finally in her retirement is now considering giving more. She has given so much already. I wonder why more of us don’t consider bringing a child into our home, temporarily. We are too busy, have our own families we can barely keep up with, too consumed in our own lives… I am so proud to have my mother as a role model, who constantly reminds me to stop, be grateful for what I have, not take it for granted, and always give what I can. #angelsamongus #fostercare #childreninneed #ilovemymom @jodihealy if you like please share, someone else may too
