Considering a second foster child.

Considering a second foster child.


New York Times’ Motherlode blog is featuring Meghan Moravcik Walbert, a foster mom. Here she tells of her heart’s ache after getting a call to care for a child her family isn’t equipped to take in.

We know that ache. Having minutes to decide what would drastically change our lives and this little one’s life for weeks, months, years. Not knowing what will be if we say yes or no. How can we take in two kids from a meth lab at 2am when we don’t have the right car seats or cribs? How can we not?

Real questions. That we ask ourselves again and again even after we hang up the phone with the caseworker.
