"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
"Tears are streaming down my face. If this doesn’t make you cry, nothing will. But it’s a happy ending so don’t think you can’t watch it".
Poem from a Foster Dog
There I sat, alone and afraid,
You got a call and came right to my aid.
You bundled me up with blankets and love.
And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.
Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss.
Along came a new family, they even have kids!
They took me to their home, forever to stay.
At first I thought you sent me away.
Then that second lesson became perfectly clear.
No matter how far, you will always be near.
And so, Foster Mom, you know I've moved on.
I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.
But I'll never forget what I learned that first day.
You never really give your fosters away.
You gave me these thoughts to remember you by.
We may never meet again, and now I know why.
You'll remember I lived with you for a time.
I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.

This is why we do what we do. I've had many fosters and failed fostering 3 times, the last being my heart Weenie. Fiona was lucky, she got some of her sight back but had she not, she would still have been loved by another foster or been adopted just like my blind little boy was.
