POD: In the Blink of an Eye

Sometimes short term emergency placement means exactly that. Our two newest ones who I had just decided to nickname "Dr. No" (due to his favorite word) and "Beauty" (as in Sleeping Beauty because she sleeps almost constantly) left with a case aide today. We barely got to know them, but Dr. No and Kevin enjoyed sharing a room however briefly. We didn't even get to hear the facts of their case. I hope they end up somewhere safe.

Being passed around so much must make it very hard for the children in the foster care system to form long term attachments as they grow older. Poor things. Hopefully life will work out good for them.

wow that was quick. Poor kids though they would have been so lucky to have a family like you to take care of them. :(

That's true, April. Poor Latte had been in five different homes between March of '07 and July. All these moves often come on top of early neglect at home where many of these kids are just ignored and left to fend for themselves for most of the day. They never get a chance to see what normal relationships look like. It's very sad.
