This is going to be much harder than I thought. I didn't think it would be "that hard" to give up Lil' Man. After all I have spent my entire adult life caring for other peoples children. From being the owner of a daycare, to the worlds best auntie, a nanny, and now a foster mother. Sure I was sad when the kids outgrew the need for daycare, but it just isnt the same.
This little guy calls me Mommy. Yesterday while at the Dr's office he spouted out "Dr. J, I grew in my Mommy Karen's heart, and she grew in mine too"
I never thought I would be faced with such a hard decision so early on in the foster care world. I admit I love this little guy, but I just don't think we are his forever family.
