This story is an account about engaging in foster care: how it opened our eyes, our hearts, and changed the way we live our life. We entered foster care in ignorance of a complex system full of people who live and hurt differently than we do. The more time my family and I spent involved with foster care, the more people we met who opened our eyes to the hurt around us. This is a narrative of our journey in foster care, an educational resource, but even more a story of how we learned to see others - how we learned to love.
