I am so new to this fostering… They warn that you have to be emotionally able to give love to the animal, all the while knowing you are preparing her for her forever home.
Confession – I fostered as a test. Like dipping my toes in the water to see how it felt. Adoption was always in my mind, and I did let the rescue group know that. But but but…
Now do I move to adopt her, or let the world come calling to inspect her?
My friends weigh in:
*yikes! You weren’t thinking of giving her up were you??
*My opinion: if you really wanted this dog there would be no buts.
*Is it the process that you love?….seeing a personality develop from your loving care….but… would you want to do this again?* ….if not! … maybe keeping Crystal even with reservations may be the best choice.
*are you sure you want to let her go? because I have a family I can recommend her to…? but I want to make sure this is what you are ready for
Think I will take the dog out and ponder in the snow.
