On Becoming a Foster Parent – August

On Becoming a Foster Parent

August marked the end of our first year together. I felt like we had grown a lot, but there is still so much to overcome. We are looking forward to finalizing an adoption, and along with that anticipation we have to face our fears. I chose an acrostic poem to summarize those emotions.

Another piece of paper

Discloses your past

Oft times I cry

Praying it won’t haunt you

Trample your pride or make you

Insecure of your worth

Out of humility is born humanity

we caN break the pattern of abuse
