I attended a foster parent forum last night. As people entered the room, one of the foster parents kept commenting that parents were in this room and teenage foster children were meeting next door. I didn't think much about it but did find it odd since some of the parents entering the room did not appear to have teenagers with them or were talking about younger children.
After the forum was over the foster mom approached me. She stated she wanted to apologize for making comments about the teens meeting next door. She stated she thought I was a foster child and just wanted to make sure I was in the right place. I told her no apology was needed. And it isn't. I am pleased that at 32 years old I was mistaken for a teenager. It was a great feeling.
