Being a mother has been one of the biggest blessings that I’ve ever gotten to experience in my life. Alongside that, It’s also been the toughest. Moms, we can go on and on about the list of things that makes life just a little bit more complicated and stressful when it comes to being a wife and mother. But that’s not what I’m referring to when I say “toughest.”
You see, Bio parents and foster/adoptive parents have a bad reputation with each other. Bio parents and foster parents (in terms of foster care) have this way of sometimes thinking ill about one another. I mean, in all honesty, even bio mom told me one time the word ‘foster mom’ “Left a bad taste in her mouth.” Let me tell you, I’ve heard horror story upon horror story countless times, and sometimes they’re true, but ours is not one of them.
children but bio parents as well (if that be the case, sometimes it isn’t) . You’re to work side by side caseworkers and other people who represent your children as they confront some of the hardest moments in their young lives. You continuously fight for those who sometimes don’t have a voice for their own. And most importantly, you show love unconditionally to a child that is put in your life for that purpose in time.
Whether you’re just starting out, a mom to be, adoptive momma or Foster we all need to start somewhere with the things we need for our kiddos. Now to be completely honest I can’t share much with you on the pregnancy aspect, but I do have my Infant, toddler and general favorites for motherhood. And let me tell you, as a foster momma, it’s best to have most of these things on hand for those just in-case moments.
I always like to say that I may not have all the luxuries and may not have all the wealth in this world, but God has always provided me everything that I need to live and serve Him. If that’s all I ever have, then that’s enough for me. Everything else is just a bonus that I don’t deserve but was mercifully given.
