Heard from a former foster son

One of my all time favorite foster sons called me today. He was Johnny when we got him at age 3 months. He was tiny thing, only 8 pounds and he had three broken bones. We had him until he was a year and a half old, when he and his bio sister were adopted by a wonderful couple. His name is now Ryan (his choice) and he is 19 years old. He just graduated and is soon to be starting college majoring in Homeland Security. I am so proud of him, he had a ton of obstacles to overcome and he has done a great job. It was so good to hear from him!

Thanks, Jen. It's good to hear from you! I've been reading your blog for awhile now, Denise gave me the link. I started blogging, mainly because my son made fun of it, but I have found that I really enjoy it. I love reading other adoptive parent's blogs. It makes me feel like I'm not going through this alone! Please tell Dan I said hello. Michelle
