I love this! Mamas all need support no matter how new or how seasoned!


Mama's need support during the month of May.  It's a rat race to the end of school.

I’m a (relatively) new foster mom (no bio kids of my own). I was placed with my first foster child, a 16-year old boy, on September 2, 2022, then our second foster child (14 years old) on April 27, 2023. Our soon-to-be 17 year old and our 14 year old are pushing and shoving the boundaries of our home and with the choices they make in life, and it’s really scary to think about how their generation is going to operate in life when they become adults. It feels so overwhelming most days, but I have to keep believing that my husband and I are doing important work and that we are making even a little bit of difference. We will hopefully be adopting our 14-year old in November. Just wondering if parenting ever gets less scary. Trying to find peace right now even in the midst of my kids not always making the decisions I would have liked them to make. I know that you can only teach kids and coach them so much and take away privileges when they do something wrong, but at some point, they have to make their own mistakes and learn from the consequences. I am just trying to find peace within myself right now as they are working through that phase of their life. If there are any other foster/adoptive parents out there, feel free to say hello! 🙂

Wow, you are one strong mama!! That sounds tough, but it also sounds like you are fit for the role. Keep going!
