Breathe breathe in the air Don't be afraid to care Leave but don't leave me Look around and chose your own ground For long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be
Who am I? My identity has been as a mother for so long. As my children grow up, I find the need to re-identify who I am, where I am going in this life.
As a foster mother, I find I am pulled in two directions - to meet the needs of the children in my care, and to reach out to help the larger community of children lost in the foster care system.
As I wife, I hope that we have moved into a deeper level of caring and commitment after 25 years of marriage, with it's happiness and sorrows.
As a Christian, I struggle to find a deeper level of faith.
These are my joys, frustrations, hopes and fears. Hopefully I can learn and grow from them.
