And the roller coaster continues...

Wow, when I boarded the roller coaster a few weeks ago, I had no idea it would be such a crazy, unpredictable ride! I can't even begin to explain what has happened the last few days. One day things are looking good, the very next day, the plan has taken off in a completely different direction! All I can do is sit back, and let the ride complete itself.

It does feel like we took one step forward and a thousand steps back, but won't know that for sure for awhile. If you are an edge of your seat, thrill seeking kind of person, someone who thrives on change and adversity, foster care may be for you. For those of us that like stability, a sense of knowing, and predictability, it's much more challenging. Right now I don't see an end in sight. Thankfully...I have God and these precious little ones to focus on, and that makes it all worthwhile.

I can totally relate to this post this week, What a ride we have been on and just when you think you know what is going on everything turns upside down.
Take Care, Cora

I had to laugh at that last paragraph. You summed up being a foster parents so perfectly. :)
