After Action Report

I don't think we'll be doing foster care for the foreseeable future.  We have enough of our own problems right now...though I have hope that The Wife and I can work through them.  "Pixie" was our last foster child for awhile, though.  And I hope "Pixie" the best, and last heard she's doing better in her family environment.  I've heard mixed results on the others we tried so hard and sunk our lives into so deeply.  Some have been good.  I hope we had a hand in that.  Some have done not-so-good.  I hope we didn't make their situation worse.

We might do foster care again...but I don't think it will be at least for another couple of years.  So let's consider this a MAJOR hiatus.  I'll continue this blog if such time comes as it makes sense.  Until then, I'll be focusing on my own child.  Panda.  And The Wife.  That's all that matters now.

This foster parenting stuff is a rough business. We decided to take a break and still manage to have DSS ringing our phone for various reasons. I wrote a book about our experience called Hattie's Advocate. It was picked up by a true publisher, and is on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. I am sharing it with others who share there story. Email me your address and I'll send you a free copy if you like. Thanks for all you do. My email is - Matt

Hey Dan, I'm orginally from MN, but my family and I now live in China. We started our foster care journey a year ago with an HIV+ orphan and now its expanded to 3 little ones. I hope that you're doing well!
