I will! Gosh I love kiddos! Even teenagers! As long as they aren't mine! Went to Juvenile Hall today. The kids all thought I'd be too busy and cancel. The supervisor called this am, assuming I wouldn't want to fight traffic and be away from home so late. NOPE! They're doing a great job with the dogs. We talked a lot today about how to be thankful, not bitter. How their choices landed them in JH for the holidays. Most are misguided kids with POS parents and family. Some are bad to the core, also with POS parents and family. Issac, I've known for a year. He killed someone. He has no remorse. He has a child. He's true to a gang like his family expects. Tomorrow, on Thanksgiving, he happens to turn 18. Tomorrow, he will be transferred to prison. I don't feel bad for him. He's smug. For the rest of the kids, it's a wakeup call. I didn't speak to Issac today, he made his bed. If ya'll can understand, my kitchen was at JH today. I was there when their families weren't. That's my Thanksgiving.
Bless you heart honey, you are way more than a parent than many who have kids are. You are giving these troubled kids a piece of your heart. Teaching them about responsibility, love & acceptance. Not all can be fixed, like Issac, he is too broken. His support system (home) is broken so he never stood a chance.
Mutt I think your pretty amazing, your giving a piece of your heart to these youth & sharing your kids(pups) for them to learn about love.
May you have a blessed Thanksgiving dinner with your hubby
