He Wasn’t Ours’ to Keep. An After Piece to the Blog, “What’s Your Hope, Child?”


Up to 75% off!

We fell in love knowing he would not stay.
He wasn’t ours’ to keep.
So how do you say goodbye to him,
When our hearts only want to weep?
A Foster child is temporary,
It’s only for a while.
You laugh, you love, you teach, you share,
Always with a smile.


You share the things that mean the most,
Not knowing how long they’ll stay.
You hope your impact will guide them well,
All along their way.
You keep them close while you have them near,
Letting them go with memories deep.
In your heart you love them always and forever,
Knowing he wasn’t ours’ to keep.
