My TA has helped me all year by helping tie lots of quilts. When she asked why we were making them I said they were going to be given to kids in foster care. She said she is a foster kid and said she has never been given a quilt. Both of her parents are drug addicts. Her dad just made contact with her when she turned 18. She knows who her mom is, but does't want anything to do with her because she is still addicted. Her foster mom and dad have many foster kids. She has a 'real' sister who doesn't live with her and lots of other brothers and sisters. For all of the stuff she has had to deal with, she has done really well. She is going to a state college next year and wants to be a CSI agent. I know she will make lots of people proud.
I hope she loves this quilt. I'm going to add at least one more row to the bottom and a border around it. I want her to be able to use it on her bed.
