We have a new foster child arriving tonight. His name is Michael. He is nine years old and in second grade.
We have been slow to step back into foster care, and the placements themselves have slowed. Many more children are being placed in kindred placements, able to live with aunts and uncles or grandparents, and we think that is a great thing.
Michael will only be with us for a week. He is with us while his foster parents travel on a trip they had planned out west before his arrival three weeks ago.
We know that is a lot of change for Michael.
So as we prepare, and he probably feels a sense of dread, please think of the Sharpteam today as we add one to our adventures.
