We take in respite babysitting, which is just babysitting for other foster parents so they can run errands, have a night out or maybe take a trip without their foster kids. We have had the same 4 sibling group all this past fall and now winter, we have a blast with these 4 kids.
Last night we had 3 of the 4 spend the night. My grown daughter had put together a great donation of junior girls clothes and one of these kids that we had last night is 10 and she had a blast trying on super cute clothes. She is taking home a huge stuffed bag of some adorable outfits. These are clothes from Aeropostle, American Eagle, Hollister, the really super cute expensive stuff. It was shear joy watching her come out with all these adorable skirts and sweaters, little summer tops, shorts, just everything a little 10 yr old could want.
This is the joyful part of foster/respite work. Little does this great little foursome know but we have been told they may be sent back to Florida to live with their grandfather in the next couple of weeks....a not so nice man. But that is another story. Today we will be happy to have them with us and enjoy the company of these kids. We will sure miss them when they travel on to their next destination.
You all have a super Saturday!
