Meet Sweet Millie Faye
by Michelle Bradford
My husband and I fostered for 9 years. We have 3 children, two biological and our youngest was adopted. In the 9 years that we fostered, we had 74 children to love and nurture. Upon the adoption of our youngest daughter, we made the decision to stop fostering so she would not have to say goodbye to anyone else that she loved and could feel more secure in her place in our family. Our youngest is 10 years old now and very secure and confident. I wanted to start fostering again and my husband was afraid, he had gotten used to not having to pick me up out of the floor heartbreak after heartbreak. for the last 20 years I have had a small child in my home. I didn't really know who I was without that role. My 10 year old is at the age that she doesn't want me to pamper her and baby her and I was finding that it was one of the more difficult things in my life that I have been through. Enter Sweet Millie Faye. She came along at a time in my life that I needed her most. Even though it's only been 3 weeks, she has filled a hole in my heart and she loves to be pampered by not only me, but her 3 human siblings and daddy. And while I still love my role as mom to my 3 children, it's hard to rock a 25 year old, 17 year old and 10 to sleep :) Sweet Millie Faye has assumed that spot and I'll take it. <3
