The Good, The Bad, and The Smelly

We have had our little ones for about 5.5 months now, and it has been an emotional rollercoaster!I think the hard part about fostering is the constant state of "unknowing" that we are in. We never know if they will be staying, going, transitioning to a new home. I would call this "The Bad." On the flip slip, "The Good," we are experiencing parenthood. Seeing Baby Boy stand today was exciting! And Baby Girl crawling is exciting after all she has gone through. But man, do they produce the most awful smells. Warm milk burps. Broccoli farts. Teething sour poops. It is like I can always subtly smell it. So to recap: Fostering is HARD, but at the end of the day, when I get to sing a lullabye to two freshly bathed babies, I am thankful that I have the opportunity to experience it all.
