As we look at saying goodbye to our foster kiddos, I look back and remember the mantras we’ve developed over the last few months.
“You are smart, you are kind, you are brave.”
“Whose actions can you control?”
“Violence is never okay.”
“It’s okay to feel your emotions.”
“Homework/school is not optional.”
“You are not a dog.”
We’re going to miss these kids like crazy. They’ve taught us so much and we love them so much. Pray for them and pray for us.
We are Haley and James Earley, a family of two established on October 11, 2014 in our hometown of Rochester, MN and now living in St. Paul, MN. We are dog-lovers, coffee addicts, tree-huggers, balance-seekers, community-livers, and new foster parents. We live in a house of three adults, three dogs, and our sweet foster kiddos. We desire to slow down in this fast-paced world in order to pursue intentional community as we seek after the heart of God. We're just one couple trying to figure out this whole living life thing.
