    Hey…. thanks for showing me that!. it was really nice that the author did that. maybe i will read the book. is it hard to read from both words and feelings, scary, etc?. maybe if i can read it, i can write something about it. im going to check out your blog too. thanks for writing and showing me that.

    LT, I was thinking of you today. I read a new book from one of my favorite authors and… the book is dedicated to you, LT. You inspired someone to write a book about foster kids and child abuse. This is the link: If you click “look inside” and scroll up just before the first chapter–it’s to you, LT. You can read the dedication. I’m so glad you’re doing better.

    Hello LT, are you still writing a blog? Did you move to a different platform? Thank you.

    LT! It sure has been a while. I know you posted this a couple months ago now, but I’m so freaking glad to see you back! Woo!

  • 9. Sage  |  September 17, 2017 at 5:31 am

    LT! I am SO happy to see a post from you all this time later! I have missed you and your voice and your heart and your spirit and your wisdom SOOOOOOOO much. I am actually crying right now seeing this post. I have checked on your blog a few times a month for years now and never stopped – even during the times you didnt write. I hope I spelled everything right through these tears lol. I am so happy to see this post. So happy. ❤

    Hey LT.
    Thinking of you and hoping that you’re well. Big hugs.
    I recommend you on the FosterIT subreddit all the time, come and talk with us there if you feel like it. Or actually the Adoption sub– the FosterIT sub is often foster parents and the Adoption sub is better moderated by adult adoptees.

  • 11. L J Saunders  |  September 13, 2017 at 9:29 pm

    Glad to see another post LT. But where is all your old stuff like “Tips and perspectives for caring for foster kids”? There were some really good insights in those.

  • 12. claudineguertin  |  September 13, 2017 at 12:02 pm

    LT, I just wanted to tell you that I am very happy to know you’re still here and breathing and experiencing life. I’ve thought of you often in the long space between your posts, always hoping that you decided to stay in your body awhile longer and always hoping you’ve been filling that time and space with self-healing and self-love. Always here for you.

  • 13. fractal  |  September 9, 2017 at 10:00 pm

    What a relief and a pleasure to hear from you, LT! Welcome back. You have been sorely missed. (from a long-time follower who has only commented once before years ago but came out of the shadows again for this occasion)

  • 14. Instant Mama  |  September 9, 2017 at 12:34 am

    Good to hear from you!

  • 15. Homaira  |  September 7, 2017 at 2:01 pm

    LT? I can’t believe it! You’re back!!!!!! 😃😃😃

  • 16. Cheryl  |  September 7, 2017 at 8:32 am

  • 17. Foster Mom in Training  |  September 6, 2017 at 10:36 pm


    I hope you are doing well. I was so worried for you. Focus on your continued healing. I send prayers, hugs, and hopes for peace.

  • 24. Mooglet  |  September 4, 2017 at 3:39 am

    Wooo!! There is an update, and it now looks like LT actually did this (when I posted my previous comment LT’s note wasn’t showing, just the link).

    LT – It is so good to know you are still out there in the world. I hope you are happy and healthy.

    Best wishes to you.

  • 25. ritalee8383  |  September 3, 2017 at 11:10 pm

    Is that you LT?

  • 26. Anonymous  |  September 2, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    Baby, is that you? At last a light shines in my dark life!

  • 27. TdSL  |  September 2, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    Hi LT,

    I have been wondering about how you are doing. I hope this long break from blogging means that you are so busy with a life full of happiness and inspiration that you don’t have time to write here anymore. If you ever feel like checking in to let us know how you are doing, I am sure that other people would be happy to hear from you as well.

    All the best,


  • 28. Tamaraa Turner  |  September 2, 2017 at 12:12 pm

    I really enjoyed your blog. I am a specialized foster parent. I have heard from our children the horror stories and emotions you have felt. This has helped me be a better parent, and person. Thank you, I look forward to future writings from this blog.

  • 29. westande  |  September 1, 2017 at 4:38 pm

    Sooooooo very happy to see a post after such a long time. I feared that you had done something drastic. I hope life is treating you better these days and that you have many more friends in your corner. Best wishes to you.

  • 30. Those Interrupted  |  September 1, 2017 at 1:35 pm

    I hope you’re doing well, LT.

  • 31. kimberly williams  |  September 1, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    does this mean LT is back?!?

  • 32. thelazylassie  |  September 1, 2017 at 12:09 pm

    I am not sure if you meant to share just the link, or if you were going to write a blog about it, but I am glad you shared this. Many people have never heard of the Dave Thomas foundation and they do wonderful work. I am blessed to be starting my internship through the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program. The people who work for the Dave Thomas Foundation of hearts of gold, and do wonderful things for children in foster care. I cannot wait to be a part of that.

  • 34. adoptionletters  |  September 1, 2017 at 10:54 am

    LT, I just wanted to let you know that you have touched more lives than you know. My husband and I have been fostering for three years and have adopted two beautiful teen girls. Your amazing blog was my first step in learning to parent them compassionately. You have touched my life, my daughters lives, and the lives of the 16 other kids that have come through my doors. Never stop being you.

  • 35. AnnMarie Johnson  |  September 1, 2017 at 10:10 am

  • 40. Mooglet  |  September 1, 2017 at 5:00 am

    DAMN! I’d be dreading this happening.
    I wish I’d had chance to save more of LT’s work. I only got a couple.
