A thought on foster care and adoption

Sometimes it is difficult to remember that my kids have a past that doesn't include me. That someone else loved them, or didn't. Cared for them ... or mistreated them. And while their opinion of the world was being formed someone else was guiding that, for good or for bad.

This video clip is a good reminder and a touching piece. Thanks to Christine for sharing it.
