Foster Care

by Brianna, age 13

Not really what you expect . . .

Lots of help
And family that love you more
Than you love yourself

They’re there through the good
And bad times.

It’s amazing to have so much
Love surrounding you:
There when you need it
There when you don’t.

You have the parent
Who cares more than you think.

Foster care lets you know
There’s hope in getting the
Mother you never had.

And for people who say
There isn’t a God . . .
Well, there is, because He
Made it all happen!

Brianna received $15 for having her poem published.
