Speechless moments

This evening, my daughter asked how long she was in foster care, which opened a discussion that resulted in a basic overview of her foster care timeline. When I was explaining her failed reunion with her mother, I said something like "she wasn't being able to take care of you like you needed to be taken care of..." and she cut me off with a matter-of-fact

"like Daddy's not taking care of us now?"

Wow. Ouch.


  1. Not far from the truth it seems :(

    1. It's definitely true. Honestly, it makes me angry to think of how he would tell me that he couldn't understand how her mother could go without seeing her or providing for her. Now, he's making that choice as well. He has no right to judge her.

  2. Out of the mouths of babes...

  3. Ouch. Kinda makes me want to kick him the nuts. Seriously
