About This Blog


I’m LT, which is short for Looney Tunes.  I love cartoons.

This blToon-LooneyTunes-ThatsAllFolksog is about my life, foster care, mental health, and all kinds of stuff.  I am not a doctor or a therapist or a social worker or a foster parent, I was a foster kid for along time… and my whole world has been affected by it.

I started writing the original blog in 2008, went private, came back and blogged a little here and there.  Then I took a much needed break for a few years…

Keep reading… amazing things have happened.. and much is yet to come.  If you missed the earlier blog years, you will catch on… the themes are pretty clear.

Peace – LT

    I’m wondering if you are the person I met today at the prairie? If you are, I enjoyed talking with you, and I’m glad you’re writing about your experiences and what people and the system can do better.

    I’m generally not much of a blog person, but I love your writing style! You truly have a talent!

    My hubby and I were foster parents, but once we took in my 5 year old niece we focused all our efforts on her. We’ve had her with us for almost a year now and the difficult behaviors are beginning to smooth. The experiences you have shared, the tips and advice, have all been extremely helpful. Thank you!

    You have helped many kiddos and struggling foster parents out there with your very well-written sage advice.

    I started reading your blog when I was in grade nine and I still check from time to time how you’re doing. Thank you for everything you taught me. I hope you know how much you helped people like me who had a rough life and felt all alone. Take care of yourself LT

    Thank you for telling it like it is! May I use with my foster parents at a training? I think it’s more powerful when it is someone’s life story vs. textbook/theory.

    May I share some of your blogs with my Guardian ad Litem volunteers?

    Thank you for having the courage to write your feelings and share with the world.

    We are all here in our own path and having experienced the foster system yourself, be sure you are evolving a lot faster then most people.

    My advice is take on a new challenge: if making friends is what you feel like, go for it! Try to interact with whoever you can connect…
    Watch Eckhart Tolle’s videos on youtube, I have a feeling you will connect with his messages.
