"God gives us dreams a size too big so that we can grow into them."

I couldn't have said it better myself Part 8

"There are many who are nervous to go into foster care because they feel they will love someone and have to watch them leave. I get that. I think that's big for many who don't go into foster care. I wish they could see that although it may hurt them a bit for a child to leave, they have provided love and stability to a child who has LIVED hurt. And who often goes back to hurt. So to hurt a bit and love a child and hopefully be a seed of positivity in their future, I'll take that."

So, so true.
"It is worth it to be vulnerable and risk the pain for the goal of love."
One of my favorite quotes that I like to relate to fostering.

love the way you put it leah. most times i dont have a come back when people say they can't do it cause they'll get too attached.

someone once even told me that they couldn't do foster care because they love too deeply. like i dont.

Well put! I like to say love sometimes hurts but it never fails.

It reminds me of a quote I recently came across:

"To pity distress is but human; to relieve it is Godlike." -Horace Mann
