I've been asked to foster a baby expected to be suffering drug withdrawal when it is born next week.

It is years since I've cared for one of these and any advice would be most gratefully received.

I read this so many times, I haven't read it again but i'm still crying just opening it and reading that first post.

RIP EMINflowers you wonderful woman, you will always be remembered.

What a brave, selfless, tough, and wonderful miracle of a human being. RIP EMIN.

Just RTFT, tears rolling. What an amazing selfless woman. Absolutely incredible.

I remember this thread so well - I posted on it (under a different name) because I was about to adopt an addicted baby and EMIN gave me such lovely advice. My dd is now a strong, healthy and beautiful 7yo, and I think - often - about the vital role her foster carer played in getting her through those difficult early months, And then I think of EMIN. flowers

Sat here crying. If I could be even one quarter the woman Emin was, it would be a life well lived.

Everyone has already said it all but had to comment. Read for the first time, I don't think it will be the last but I hope the next time I read this back I will cry less.

What a lovely woman. EMIN I hope your family are doing well and I hope you're somewhere watching over them, and all the LO's you gave the best start to.

I've honestly never read this. Despite being on here for quite some time.

I'm bawling.

RIP flowers <3!!!

What an inspiring and emotional thread. I just read it and tears have poured all the way from page 2.

Emin was an absolutely amazing lady.

I was an adopted baby and spent the first 2 months of my life with a foster carer who I can only hope showed me half the love that Emin did for the baby in her care.

RIP flowers

Wow, just wow, what a truly amazing women. I read the whole thread and felt relief when you turned that little ones life around I cried when you handed her over to her mummy and daddy, then felt angry when your life came to pass, why.

Only just read this & did not expect this ending!
I have never cried due to a thread before, but I am lying here sobbing my eyes out! I lost my mum last year to cancer which also spread, it is awful!
EMIN did such an amazing job & has brought so much love to so many children who wouldn't have had the chance to get over their terrible start without her.

EMIN, I am in awe of you & your limitless love, you really were an absolutely wonderful person.
