As you may already know, my husband and I have been fostering a marvelous little girl this year. The primary goal in foster care is for reunification to occur with the child's biological family. Last week, my girl went back to her mother. I wish them both nothing but the best, and hope everything goes well, but it still hurts a lot to see that kid go. There have been tears. However, we will all keep in touch with one another. So it's not like a permanent goodbye. More of a 'See you in a while, crocodile'.
