Mom brought foster toddler into home. But moments later, little girl says something that shakes her to her core-teaser
Jamie C is a mother to two biological children, but has opened her family up to any foster child who needs a home, for however long. A nurturer at heart, "nothing gets me smiling/crying/talking-loudly-with-wild-hand-gestures" more than the care and welfare of children, she wrote in her blog. As such, Jamie's children are also well versed in being part of the "welcoming committee" whenever a new face shows up in their home. Earlier this year, when a 2-year-old girl had come to stay with them, Jamie's two children were right there with her to greet them “Hi, sweetie. My name is Jamie. I’m so glad you’ve come to stay with us. Do you want to go meet the kids?” she asked. The kids, who double as the tour guides, and the concierge service, Jamie jokes, bounded over. (“You’re here! Want to see your bed? Want a baby doll? Want a snack? I love you!”). Jamie shared that her kids are the key to helping a new child feel at home, and "nothing makes me prouder" to see them do so. But barely ten minutes into the tour, the little girl---who had spent 5 months of her 2-year life bounced around from four different homes---turned to Jamie with a smile.
