Throughout our fostering experience, Elizabeth and I have taken some time to try to answer questions we hear, share the emotions (good and bad) that we feel, and raise awareness for the importance of fostering.
No matter how we describe fostering, words fall short.
One of the necessary parts of fostering is that the children are protected throughout the process as much as possible, so pictures are fairly limited.
There goes the “a picture is a thousand words” platitude.
About a month ago, a video was released, though, that communicates the journey and feelings that a foster child might feel throughout the process of being removed from their home, and placed in care.
It crushed me, in a good way.
It is by a producer who goes by the name “Heschle“, and he produced this video to increase awareness for the needs of foster children, and quality foster homes.
Will this answer all your questions and make everything make sense?
Nope. But it is worth the 15 minutes of your time.
Have you ever thought about how a child feels when they are ReMoved?
