We Worried About Them
Today’s episode is a special one. I was able to steal a few minutes away with the one who made me a Mommy. Leila is 14 years old and a Freshman in High School. I kind of want to throat punch time. She is an incredible big sister to her biological sisters- Landyn, Liviana, her adopted brother- Ford, and over 20 foster siblings. She has been fostering in partnership with us, because it really is a family thing, for almost 4 years. She brings such light wherever she goes and plans on working in the helping field as an adult. She is constantly seeking out ways she can make an impact and I know she is only getting started. I am proud of her always and to see her and her sisters engage in foster care, is truly inspiring. Leila mentions a few times, loss of a child, and as badly as you may want to correct that wording, honestly it is a loss of a sibling that she has come to love. You can find more about that on a previous social media post. So hunker down in your comfy chair, let us join you on your drive to work, or continue strolling through Target as we spend some time with Leila, hearing her story of Becoming Fosters.
