How bitter and yet how sweet it is that he now follows me around everywhere I go. He sits under me as I blow my hair dry, hoping that I'll filter some warm air his way and he'll catch his breath and squeal in delight. He waits patiently with me as the water fills my cup, he knows I'll let him feel the coolness on his gums as I begin to teach him how to drink. Come April 18th, there will be such a deep void, a deafening silence, a searing loss everywhere I turn. But I would do it again even knowing the end result, because #thisisfostercare and #heisworthit .
