Hi. I’m Amy.


I’m an editor, and I like tacos and reading and hosting dinner parties. I also overanalyze everything. But, for some reason, when I decided to become a foster parent, I didn’t think about it–I just did it. I’ve only had one placement. In this space, I’ll call him T. He was 7 when he came to live with me in November of 2016. He’s made my life complicated and hard and I have a whole lot of gray hairs that weren’t there when he arrived. I finally decided to start writing about the experience–mostly to try to help keep myself sane.
