Christmas for children in foster care, as well as for many needy children, is also a time of grief and loss. Grief for the family they are separated from, a longing for the storybook Christmas morning they watch other families enjoy on TV, wondering if they will even have a gift to open or if they will be forgotten and overlooked.....again.
Heidi Faith, the founder of Stillbirthday, herself a former foster child and bereaved mother of the child she miscarried, wants to bring hope to foster children and healing to bereaved moms this year.
