Prayer of a Foster Parent

as i sat on the edge of the river... this was my prayer...


Grant me the strength to love
and when the time comes - not a moment before - to let go

Grant me healing
for the children in my home
and for me and mine when they are gone

Grant me fortitude
when the system in bungled and confusing
which is always

Grant me comfort
in the silence that follows
the hectic chaos of a child

Help me Lord to sing with conviction
"It is well with my soul"
even when i want to cry out for the child who has left

Let it not get easier Lord to let go
but Lord let me take comfort in knowing
