THE LEWIS FAMILY
Looking back five years ago when we became foster parents, what a journey we've had!
We have grown together with children who have come into our home. I personally have gained a truer understanding of what it means to give unconditional love to children. Now I understand what it means to be called Foster Mom or Mom.
If I can use a few words to summarize my positive experience in providing foster care to children in need, then LOVE is the word:
L: Let the foster children be themselves, let their needs be met first.
O: Oversee any situation that may occur; overlook the behaviour that foster children may display, because they are trying to tell us something.
V: Victory shall be the foster children reuniting with their biological parents. This is true unconditional love that foster parents amazingly possess.
E: Ease the physiological and psychological pain that foster children have experienced; this will truly ease our heart and put a smile on our face. This would be the ultimate motivation to keep us on the fostering journey.
