At her monthly meet up, a Love Box leader arrived at Hillary, the foster mama’s house with dinner in hand. A fresh salad, warm bread, spaghetti, and a delicious cake. The highlight of the meal… the meatballs which the two boys savored to their heart's content.
But it wasn't just dinner that she brought over to Hillary's house. She also made sure to pack a Love Box filled with groceries, a few toys, and various activities for the boys to enjoy. Additionally, some personal care items for Hillary were included…a small gesture to remind her to take care of herself amidst her busy life as a foster mom. Throughout the month, our Love Box Leader made sure to keep in touch with Hillary, checking in on her wellbeing and discussing ideas and dates for their next meetups. They exchanged texts, allowing them to keep their connection strong. One topic that came up during dinner was Hillary's upcoming court date.As she shared her experiences, her words were tinged with frustration yet weaved in with determination and commitment to being a supportive foster mom. Hillary’s devotion to the well being of these boys is truly remarkable.
As for building a bond with the boys, starting with a fun craft after dinner was just the trick!
All in all, it was a fulfilling month, filled with laughter, support, and gestures of kindness. Our love box leader cherished the opportunity to be there for Hillary and the boys, and she looks forward to continuing their journey together.
Through a simple, yet meaningful relationship lasting memories are sure to be made.
