Every Child Deserves A Loving Family
Working with Foster Children and Adoptive Children
My work as a nurse in the Special Needs field involves families that have foster children who eventually get adopted. I shudder to think of the conditions these children could have lived in if there had not been these unique individuals that wanted to share their homes with children who were in misfortunate circumstances such as families with drug abuse, parents who were still children themselves, or even low income families who could not afford the care these special children require. Working one on one allows me to get to know the individual child as a complete person who has the ability to love, the opportunity to laugh and enjoy life if it is just offered to them. I applaud the parents who accept the responsibility to give these special children what they deserve- a home.
A Child's Trust- a poem
Thank You for finding me.
I love my new home I never had
A sister or brother
A new dog or cat in the yard.
A place to call my own.
I didn't know where I was going to-
I cried because
I was scared. But then,
You hugged me,
And you held my hand.
Something to eat,
And new clothes to wear.
With new toys
You let me play.
And at night
Lights went out In my room
You would stay.
To my new Mom and Dad.
Now I know where I will always stay.
