Unhappy Prayers needed

Hey guys. Some of you know me and most of you don’t.
Long story short my wife and I started fostering a pair of siblings 4&5 last year and have had them for a solid year. We poured our heart and soul into them and they got really close to us. It was amazing watching them go from having 0 alphabet and number understanding to being able to almost read. Don’t get me wrong, the girl had many issues that may have been trauma related and the boy had severe angry blow ups often throwing and hitting us with things. Through it all we made a ton of progress and they grew to want a deep relationship with both us and God.

Well yesterday we got the dreaded phone call saying they were going back soon.... then got a call at 2pm tonight saying they were going back at 5pm tonight. So frankly my wife and I have had 0 time to prepare, pack and make things ready. Thankfully our families all rushed over to say tearful goodbyes and helped pack. Truth be told my wife and I are both angry, crushed and depressed by this sudden turn of events.... and I like most males feel liberated in a sense and mad in a thousand other ways. I also am ****** off at myself for not handling myself better, loving them more and being more gracious to their crazy issues. For those of you who have fostered or been around it you know what we are going through. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. All I can do now is hope and pray that the family they went back to loves, protects and provided for them. My wife and I are crushed to say the least. We knew this wouldn’t be easy but CRAP this sucks! Pray for peace for us and the kids that God will have His perfect work and be gloried in the midst of this. Thanks

Yall are angels in my eyes. I know several couples that have fostered and adopted and the kids backstory is always that of a horror story. Glad yall were able to give them some normalcy for a bit.

That's a tough deal to stomach. You have fulfilled your role as foster parents...and apparently very well.

All you and we can do is pray that their previous family situation has and will improve.

Prayers.

It takes special people to care for the children of others, especially knowing that it's not a permanent situation. Hopefully these kids are going back to a better situation than they left before.

Been there, done that. It never gets easier. But, I firmly believe it should hurt when kids leave and go home or to relatives. In my opinion, it's a sign you gave yourself to those kids and that is doing it right in my book. I don't know you but I'm proud of you and your family and I thank you. Far too many kids in the system need a safe and loving home, even if only temporary. Y'all provided an environment for those kids to grow, and feel loved and safe. If you want to vent or chat with someone whose been in your shoes before shoot me a message, happy to just or listen.

A piece of advice, y'all are grieving a loss. You and your wife likely will grieve differently, make sure to show each other some grace.
