My coworker is a foster parent. We have had our differences in the past, but got so much closer this year because our LOs are exactly the same age. She has a 2.5yo and a baby the same age and prematurity as Sparky. She's had them since the little one came out of the NICU, so about 9 months, and this was her first placement. They are being placed with a family member in the next 3 weeks, and my coworker is rightfully upset and grieving.
If you have ever been through this, would you please give me suggestions as to how I can help her? I know she is getting therapy and support through her caseworker, but if there is anything else I can do (besides not bothering her too much with work stuff the week they leave), I want to do it. My heart aches for her.
