Things That Are Making You Sad :( - Page 2

post #16 of 56
My foster son died last night. He was only 16 but he had many health problems.

He didn't come down for dinner so my wife went up to his room to get him and found him lying face down on the floor of his bedroom. We tried CPR and called 911 right away but it was too late...he was already dead.

I miss him. I can't stop crying.

frown.gif I'm very sorry Bentley. Could I ask for how long he was with you?
post #19 of 56
He lived with us since he was 12 years old.

+1. Jesus christ. And here I was going to complain about how much pain I was in. You poor bastard. I hope to hell you'll consider fostering another child. We need more good people taking care of unwanted kids.

Edit - never mind. It was a typo. I meant to type "you". Please fix your quote so as I don't appear rude.

Sorry about that ...

Must be really difficult to cope with and I'm using an euphenism...

All our thoughts are with you..

Oh, wow - I am so sorry, and I do not envy you at all for the rough times ahead of you and your wife. Condolences, and I hope that you consider fostering again.

I just read that he came to you at 12. You must have put a hell of a lot of work into this boy to get him onto the straight-and-narrow, or even close to it. Our son came to us at 9, he's 12 now - and even now we have our battles and frustrations.

very sorry to hear that bentley. my sincere condolences.

very sorry bentley. hopefully your family will pull together and help each other through this.....as an aside, all of you foster parents are SAINTS!

what's making me sad is our 10.5 year old spaniel mix. he was diagnosed with bone cancer in his hip last spring, and he's been doing well. until the past two weeks. he was given about 2months to live, 5 months ago, so we're over the moon happy about the time we've had, but i fear the end is nearing
