A mothers love endures despite rebuffs reject Bon and ridicule from her children a no Man is so evil or ugly that his Mother somewhere inside does no to have any More love for him. Its a result of the Strong physical relationship Between Mother and child probably but Apical motherhood Isnit the j place Mother love can exist. For Foster parents who open their Homes and hearts to troubled children its a requirement. To be a Foster Parent a you have to be willing to love and give of yourself and not expect the kids to say thank you or even act like they love you you have to want for other kids what you want for your own. You have to love in a self giving Way Quot according to Foster Mother Carol Nelson. Mrs. Nelson and her husband David have been opening their Homes to Foster children for the past 18 years. With three children of their own it has of ten been crowded and sometimes it has been a hassle but the experience Quot has helped us More than we be helped any child Quot she said. Over the years the Nelsons have cared for eight Foster children referred through the Freeborn county social services office they have ranged in age from three to 16 years and their stays have ranged from three months to three years the Nelsons who live on a farm just South of Clarks Grove got into Foster parenting almost accidentally. Quot i grew up in a Home where my Mother was always helping people a mrs Nelson said. A we did no to actually take someone in but when neighbors had problems needed food clothing or just some advice she was frequently involved Quot mrs. Nelson worked with a mental health organization for a while after her marriage and later became involved with a troubled family in the Community. The Mother in the family had four children to care for and one on the Way. But did no to seem too interested in the welfare of any of them. A it was the talk of the town How the kids were neglected. I was t in a position to do anything but people kept telling me about mrs. Nelson decided to get involved.

And 6 years old and they were like animals. It was More noticeable Here than in their Home they eat they talk the 2-year old and 3-year-old work puzzles my 18-month-old child was doing a a mrs Nelson thought the children go Back with the Mother and went about the Long. Difficult process of getting the parents rights to the children terminated. It involved months of producing evidence and witnesses but it was finally accomplished then she helped find Homes for the children with friends and neighbors. After that she and her husband decided to take in Foster children when their own children were Young the Nelsons took in teenagers but when their own children reached an impressionable age they decided to limit themselves to younger children. Many teen aged Foster children come from troubled backgrounds mrs Nelson said Quot they often have problems like truancy smoking and drinking pre delinquent behaviour. One girl we had was so violent and rebellious in her own Home that her parents handle and those problems done to magically go away when the children enter a Foster Home. A a it a a difficult adjustment to make from nothing being expected of you to regulation. When the kids have ruled the Roost skipped school and have done whatever they want for so Long ifs difficult for them to and any Parent of a teenager knows How they can become rebellious and hard to please and How tensions can run High mrs Nelson said Quot its hard to keep the per spectre that it s not you they hate but that they Are trying to find themselves when you lose that perspective that s when the tensions build a a she said not All former Foster children maintain Contact with their Foster parents but close relationships do Blossom the second Foster child the Nelsons had stayed three years from age 13 to 16, then ran away and lived through some rough times but has developed into a Talen ted woman with a husband and child of her own.

Later she said 1 never said thank you or acted like i a of cited what you did for me 11 Learned everything i know from according to mrs.
