KY’S KINSHIP CARE CRISIS

Kinship Care Crisis in KY

Still no money, but leaders have been in session and addressing supports for Kinship providers.

CHELSIE’S STAR

I miss you to the moon and back

Chelsie’s Star is a poem about A MOTHERS GRIEF. In remembrance of my special girl! 

This emptiness I am feeling
It rarely goes away
Not sure how I made it
Through another day.

 

Reminders are everywhere
No matter where I go
I cannot get past that dreadful day
We said goodbye there in the snow.

 

Your smile is all around me
There is magic in your eyes
I wonder are you with me now
And disappointed when I cry?
Somehow, I always knew
I had you on borrowed time

 

You had faith in my strength
I put on a pretty good show
All the pretending went away
The day you had to go.

 

You taught me true love
And you taught me true pain
You gave me something to fight for
You did not go in vain.
