It all started as a compromise. I’ve wanted a dog for years, my spouse does not want one until our kids are a bit older, so we met in the middle with an agreement to do animal foster care. I was more excited than my kids in Target’s toy aisle. I have now fostered two 5-month-old puppies and a 3-year-old mama cat with five 10-day old kittens. Little did I know it was going to be an incredible experience, teaching me more than I could ever teach my foster animals and making me a better mother to my own children.
