People who are new to this blog often have lots of questions. To get yourself oriented, here are some answers to questions you may have. If you have more, feel free to ask them in the comments to any of the posts you read.
Q: Are Hope, Faith, and Samuel their real names?
A: No. I don’t use their real names for privacy reasons.
Q: Who are Hope, Faith, and Samuel?
A: They are the children I have fostered. Hope and Faith are sisters. They came to live with me on March 27, 2008 when Hope was 2 and Faith was 8. After 8 months, they went to live with their forever family, and they were adopted on August 18, 2009.
Samuel is an 11 year-old boy who came to live with me on December 18, 2009 and returned to live with his biological family five and a half months later.
Q: Who are you?
A: I’m a foster mom. Like the kids, you won’t find my “real name” on this page either. I live in Austin, Texas, where I am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends in addition to the other amazing people in my life who aren’t quite so local. My favorite seasons are Christmas and football, I love the color purple, and I never skip dessert.
Q: Why do you want to be a foster parent?
