Being a foster family can be isolating and lonely. No one quite understands the challenges you face.
Some people stand, staring from a distance, not wanting to get close. Some people lash out at you, maybe because of a painful experience they or their family had with the foster care system. Some people simply ignore you.
But as time goes on, you find there are some people who reach out. They come close to you, a step at a time. They ask “how can I help”?
