The foster parent shared the story about how her 10 -year- old foster child wanting to bake cookies because her friend had brought in cookies as a birthday treat to school that she and her mom had made.
"I thought you only could get cookies in a package, did you ever make cookies?" the little girl asked.
The foster parent said, "Yes, would you like to?"
"Yes!" the little girl squealed in excitement.
Together they arranged the ingredients on the counter next to a big bowl.
"Why don't you start by measuring the flour in this cup and putting it into the bowl, and I'll start leveling the butter and sugar." She turned away and realized that it had gotten very quiet all of a sudden.
When the foster mom turned around, she wasn't prepared for what she saw. The little girl already had her hands in the bowl of flour, and began tossing it into the air and rubbing it between her hands. The kitchen looked like a piled cloud, filled with love.
That 10 year old little girl had the biggest smile on her face!
The mom just couldn't stop the joys of tears rolling down her cheeks, as she captured, in her memory the little girl's very first time baking.
