A bold, wonderful essay about a foster care experience of a girl. “Did we do something wrong?” Weren’t we enough? No one said, and we knew better than to ask. We passed without crying or even complaining, as if childhood was some kind of war, and from us they became soldiers. “(New York Times)
Plus, three reader comments:
Twyla says conversations with a seven-year-old: “My husband and I have no children, but my husband is very young at heart and constantly runs water hail / snowball fights with the children in our apartment complex. They actually ring the doorbell and ask if he can go out and play (he’s 45). We found out how unaware he was of his real age when one of the boys told him, ‘I’m telling your MOM!’, Which they did. To me. “
Tony says which are the whims of your home: “My former apartment building on the Upper West Side was amazing. There was a woman who would walk randomly down the halls shouting, ‘I MADE LEMON BARS’ and suddenly the door would open and there would be a happy hour with lemon tiles in the hallways … A lady who thanked my husband for his help in ketchup packets. with her groceries every week (Rose didn’t accept the answer no) … A premature child with his super shy parents who once asked me ‘Do you live with your friends?’ and when I answered no, “Did you have a friend?” It was such a perfect little village in a big building. I really felt at home. “
Tricia says conversations with a seven-year-old: “We laughed a lot at what our four-year-old said recently. My husband came down in a flannel shirt and our son said, ‘Dad! We’re not going to the wedding! Take off that fancy wedding suit! ‘I guess it’s been a while since he’s worn the buckle … about a year to be exact. “
