I was a foster child from the day I was born until I was two months old. At 96 years old I learned who my foster parents were. I was so sad to learn they had both passed away but their son and his wife were so incredibly kind to me and took me to the house where they had lived. Their sister had their momma 8767 s scrapbooks and there was a photo of me! That is the only photo I have from that time. Foster parents make a huge people loved on me when I had lost my mother two months is a long time although it seems short. Thank you to the Bumbalough family for taking such good care of me!
Janis : And evil takes a human form in Regina George. Don't be fooled because she may seem like your typical selfish, back-stabbing slut faced ho-bag, but in reality, she's so much more than that.

8. Don 8767 t act surprised that they are nice, smart, loving, well-behaved kids. One of the corollaries of #6 is that there tends to be an implied assumption that foster kids are flawed we must be saints because NO ONE ELSE would take these damaged, horrible kids. Well, kids in foster care have endured a lot of trauma, and sometimes that does come with behavioral challenges, but many of the brightest, nicest, best behaved, kindest and most loving children I 8767 ve ever met are foster kids.
