A POEM TO MY FOSTER DOG • By Diane Morgan
I am the bridge, between what was and what can be. I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush, because my heart melted when I saw you,
matted, sore, limping, depressed, lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
because when the time comes, when you are well, and sleek, when your eyes shine, and your tail wags with joy then comes the hard part.
I will let you go - not without a tear, but without a regret.
For you are safe forever
--A new dog needs me now!
About Fostering - By T.A.R.A. http://www.tarasdream.org/
Foster Parents provide temporary care for kittens, puppies, cats and dogs in their greater-Kansas City area homes. Some animals only need a home for a few weeks, others may need one for several months. By offering your time, energy, and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent, loving home. T.A.R.A. is always looking for foster homes, especially throughout the busy spring and summer seasons. The more Foster Parents we have, the more lives we will be able to save. Our goal is to place animals in foster homes until a permanent home can be found for them. By doing so, this animal will learn proper behaviors, become more adapted to a home environment and have a smoother transition when adopted to a permanent home.
