Day Two.

I am pretty shocked, especially since I am the kids' 3 foster care placement in two weeks, but these kids are pretty good kids. Having heard that the boy was "just whiny" I was pretty worried that he would whine constantly and I wasn't sure I could deal with that again/more. Well, this kid has nothing on Lizzy. She could out whine him any day of the week, still, even though she is better now. He only "whines" for a reason and it isn't even that loud. He has a hard time communicating BUT if you pay attention you can tell what he wants and I am very thankful for that.

I can only speak for today, but if I was to judge by today only these two kids COMBINE are easier to deal with than my Tina that just left. She gave me a good run for my money and she always spurred Lizzy on to even more whining than normal so it was a bad combo. The new girl & boy and Lizzy seem to get along pretty well...for now.

Today they did really good, no crying, no fits...now that I am saying it I am surprising myself. They were just pretty easy.

I am actually jealous of you. I am now done fostering. After 10 years, 82 kids, 6 bio and 3 adopted, I have to be done. I am now just focusing on my family. I miss fostering and getting used to kids and seeing positive changes. For 6 years, I did shelter, so I had kids in and out about every 30 days,I miss that first bit of adjusting. I never thought I would say that, but it is true. Good luck and I look forward to reading.
