Dear Friends, Family and Loved Ones with children, Please accept this note as my formal apology if you have ever felt judged by me on your parenting skills. At any point in our friendship. Ever. Let me also apologize for any comments I have made to you or your child that felt hurtful, unhelpful or unkind. Especially those that might have come in the heat of battle. Or in that last moment of sanity. Or after the crappiest day possible. Please accept this heartfelt and humbled out apology. Forgive me, I had no idea. Love, Love, Love, Your childless friend who just fostered a teenager
About six years ago I was lying in bed at my new apartment. I was all snuggled up under the covers, the last box unpacked and everything in it's place. And a thought popped into my head. If I'm still single in five years...I should look into fostering. And then I drifted off to sleep.
