A Mother’s Day Message

The following is a note from Yaritza, a young woman in the Plummer Foster Care Program, to her foster mom


Dear Patty:

I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for not only me but my family also. You took us in without any questions and supported us in everything we did. I am not sure where we would be today if it was not for you and the unconditional love you’ve given us. Because of you, I know what unconditional love is and because you’ve given me the gift of love, I can now share it with those I love. I love you more than you will ever know. You are a remarkable woman and you deserve the world and all the love in it. I appreciate everything you do. It may not seem like much but it makes a big difference in my life. The Beatles said “All you need is love” and I firmly believe that. Thanks to you (and God) I got a chance to have a real mother. I am forever grateful for that. I love you, mom.

Happy Mother’s Day.
