I know I said I was going to link to these posts, but you can just go on the website and read them yourself! They've all been really interesting, but this one stands out to me. Please read it.
I know my job isn't anywhere near as hard as the job that girl has, but sometimes I feel similar. I know that where I work is a temporary solution for the families and that they will leave (be it by graduating or leaving the program prematurely). My heart breaks when they leave. I have invested so much in those kids and haven't held back from loving them. Most of the time I don't get to say goodbye and I never get to see them again.
Anyways, those "what I want you to know" posts on Rage Against the Minivan are so interesting and eye-opening, and this one struck a chord with me.
