a lot of you have been asking about our progress on the foster care certification. first let me say "thank you". it is a long, tedious, sometimes frustrating task. we are nearing the end, although we've been told that for a month now and "things" keep popping up that we still need to do:)
i will write more about that later, but i stumbled across a book (the 2nd in this 3 party series) written by a former foster child and i thought it was interesting. i read the other two and have gained such an incredible respect for david peltzer. these books don't speak so much on the foster system, or the abuse so many children suffer through but much more on the courage of one boy to not let extreme horrors he lived through be a reason to quit. he never makes excuses or requires pity. if anyone has reason to complain about their life, it is david peltzer. he chooses not to. he chooses to live life with a grateful spirit and that has made all the difference for him.
