Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: So one of my foster boys recently had a birthday! he only had cupcakes, because we are having a big party with cake & eriks parents & my sister next weekend. He also got presents (of course) and picked his own b-day dinner (Pizza). On Sunday, My husband took the birthday boy, Zak & Rhi to the Reading Phils ball game.
Tonight the former b-day boy used his pretend phone to make a big call. He pretended to call his bio parent- on the fake phone called her 'Ms. so&so...said Daddy loves me- took me to a ball game for my birthday, Mommy loves me, she made me cupcakes for my birthday. ' Oh made me CRY!!!!!!!
Sometimes I get busy and need a reminder why I am a special needs foster parent. (yes he called her MS. Last Name!)

    Lorrie, you must always remember as a foster parent, step-parent, or regular parent we are not always remembered but they get around to it. Just keep those times in your heart where they belong and it makes up for all the arguing etc. Love grows where love begins, no matter where it begins and comes from :P

    Thanks Jeanne! This one has been our most challenging of a child so far; over two years now we have had him…and he just cannot seem to settle.
    I have to save this memory for the next time he is really naughty! ;)

    Thank you Ladies! Due to certain hippa rules, I can only state certain info about my foster children.
    Lynn, given this one’s difficulties, I think this is as close as he has ever come to standing uo for himself, and allowing our healthy love to take the place of the ‘love’ he was raised with.
