Dear Child

Dear Child

Child with no safe home


Going from family to family 

As the weeks go on


Dear Child 

Child who is scared of tomorrow 


Counting down the days and hours 

restarting when you get to a new place


Dear Child 

Child who only talks to their case worker more than thier foster family


No foster family has ever heard you speak

So they assume you are mute 


Dear child 

Child who cries when they get to a new home


Not knowing what will happen 

The unknown scares you


Dear child

Child with abandonment issues 


Who thinks awful thoughts 

thoughts like "who could ever love a orphan kid?"

@Dallask7 This is so sad, but true. I could relate to this since I used to live with my mother's family. Then I moved in with my dad's house which was really hard for since I didn't get to know them much. Awesome job and God bless you for your gift! :)
