If you haven't read The Samantha Chronicals, I really encourage you to click on the link so you can fully experience what this little girl had gone through.
This was Samantha's shelter picture. It's still hard for me to look at this picture....maybe because I get the heebie-jeebies over fleas and skin creepin' crud. But this isn't really about where Samantha has been....it's where she is NOW....
These pictures were sent to me today via a forward from Jen. For those of you who think fostering isn't for you - please look carefully at what love can really do. A letter came with the pictures from Samantha's new family. I thought about posting the letter, but there's really nothing that these people can say to detract from these incredible pictures.
But really....doesn't a picture speak a thousand words?
Samantha didn't die alone in the shelter. She is having a wonderful life thanks to her foster Mom that cared enough to step forward to give this girl a chance.
I'm going back to the shelter tomorrow for another rescue, thanks to more volunteers who have offered to step forward to save a life.
