Court.
.
Today I went to court with a friend as she went in representation of her foster daughter. I haven’t stepped foot in this court house since my birthday last year when we got the “ok” to move forward with adoption (still without a date but we had our adoption disclosure that day and would get our adoption date before the end of the year).
.
For a year and a half (April 2016-October 2017) I came to this court house to represent foster children. For 9 months I came in representation of our first babes. We never missed one. After that, I went in representation of twins who hadn’t even moved into my house yet. Then I went to represent them as my foster children. And then, I went to represent them as my potential adoptive children.
.
I knew I experienced a lot of anxiety as a foster mom each of those times and I hope to write about it someday but today it rushed over me like a freight train. I was mentally not prepared for all of the feelings what would engulf my heart, mind and physical body. I literally almost passed out. My heart couldn’t take it. I’ve never felt so crushed by multiple emotions at once.
.
A year and a half of trudging through court dates representing 4 different children. I knew it had an effect on me but until today I didn’t realize the extent.
.
And all I could think about was I should be back there fighting for more while simultaneously thinking I never want to step foot in there again (unless to support a friend).
.
Foster care is tough. It isn’t for the faint of heart. I know that and I knew that when I started but today made me realize how tough my heart was through that time because it was not prepared today. It is not as tough as it became when I was in there fighting for little souls.
.
I am so proud of my friends who continue to fight for these kids. I am overwhelmed with gratitude that I am able to help them in the smallest ways. And as I said prayers in my car over all of those precious children being represented in that court room, who’s lives are up to a judge’s gavel, I couldn’t help but be so grateful for this dang building that gave me my children 💙💜

Today is his 7th birthday. Cow Lick was with us 7 months. We have no idea where he is, how he is or what he’s gone through the last 3 years since he moved from our home.💙
It’s hard to think of all the trauma he’s endured. And I honestly ask God why sweet children suffer like this - the answer is sin. Sin in this world. Broken hearts, broken people. 💔
.
Foster care has had me longing for heaven like nothing else. Jesus comes back + there are no more tears.💛
.
Would you pray for Cow Lick today? Pray for us as we process lots of emotions that have been buried for years? Pray for our kids as we explain in the future what it was like fostering? Pray for families fostering now? Rise up, as the Church — let’s intercede + serve. Jesus stepped into our mess. Follow Him.

Are you loving a kiddo with a trauma background and you have to remind yourself of this truth daily? Or maybe you're having to educate your support system why your child is struggling. Either way, we pray this quote is a helpful reminder for anyone who needs it 😀 ⠀

You know those holiday gift lists? Where you choose a child’s name and wishlist off a tree?
.
This is kinda like that, but instead of toys or PJs, we are asking for volunteers to drop off *one meal a month* to one Colorado Springs family in their neighborhood.
.
You see, when we support families, kids do better.
.
We have a solid group matched and ready to train this Thursday.
.
But we want to EMPTY this waiting list. Only six families left. We can do this!
.
Do you live near one of these families? DM us to start the matching process.
.
Family 1: Near Peyton post office (7 kids)
Family 2: Calhan (3 kids)
Family 3: Briargate (4 kids)
Family 4: Constitution and Powers (5 kids) - Note: This family does not need meals, but help transporting the children to one visit each week.
Family 5: Just west of the airport (4 kids)
Family 6: Security-Widefield (5 kids)
.
Give yourself the gift of supporting your neighbors—families and children all at once!

Klothes 4 Kids is now a Community Sponsor for the teen boy's cottage on the Child Haven Campus. 🎉🎉🎉When our friends, Kevin & Lynette Ezelle heard of this good news, they sent TWO boxes of brand new pullover sweaters to give to the boys! We are SO grateful for this donation.
This is a great example of how you can also get involved in showing compassion for children in foster care. "Not everyone can foster or adopt a child, but EVERYONE can do something."

So super raw that I really don’t want to share it, but that’s the whole point, right? This is an excerpt from my journal during my time as a foster parent. That job is not for the faint of heart. This was written during a particularly emotional time, I was dealing with the anxiety and fear of an impending loss and trying to figure out what came next. .
