Love, Sacrifice, and Grief

A few more gems to add to my collection of "Affirmations for Saying Goodbye/Letting Go". 

My hope in sharing these quotes is that not only will they touch someone who is dealing with a loss right now but perhaps there is someone reading this who is thinking "I just couldn't do it (foster care) and have to say goodbye and see the children go back."  I didn't think I could do it either, but as Tolstoy and Mother Teresa have taught us, the bottom line is that LOVE requires SACRIFICE.  Love can lead to grief, but it is that same love which also helps to heal.
