Pardon my booger breath…

As many of you may know, my wife Carla and I are foster parents. We have been blessed to have our first foster daughter since early January. She is a beautiful, brilliant little girl…with a great big- little personality [and a wee bit of a temper!]. She was a great fit for our family, and we have been hoping a praying for the opportunity to keep her. However, we found out recently that she will be leaving us this week to go live with a family member.

Needless to say, it has been a little gloomy around our house this past few weeks and days leading up to her leaving us.  But, she did something the other night that had us in stitches…I told you she had a big personality for a little girl.

So, here’s the story: We were watching TV on the couch…all three of us. Our little one was putting her finger near my mouth, wanting me to pretend to eat it. She gets a kick out of that.  All of the sudden, I felt something weird in my mouth…it had the strangest texture. I quickly spit it out. It was a booger. Fresh picked. She thought it was hilarious. Strangely enough…so did I!

She has provided us with memories for a life-time. We love her so much, and it is breaking our hearts to see her go.

So, pardon my booger breath…but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

  1. Josh and Carla,
    She is such a sweet little girl…I know you all will miss her so much. We are thinking and praying for you all. That little story is so cute! Kids are wonderful, great gifts from God…and they have the ability to bring us back down to their level. Cherish all the memories! Booger breath isn’t so bad when done for someone you love!

  2. Her Nana & Papa’s hearts are breaking, too. She is so precious. She has been a special gift that God has lent us for too short a time.

  3. Momow and Popow are so sad to see her go. We have loved every minute with her. Josh and Carla we thank you for opening your hearts and home to care for her otherwise we may have never known this sweet little angel. You did a great job caring for her. We love you both and are so proud of you. Our prayers are always with you and her.
