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 just read the whole thread and now I am bawling. I hope EMIN's family can see she is not forgotten. What an amazing woman she was. RIP

Just read the whole thread. What a truly inspirational woman. All them beautiful babies given the best start because of Emin. I've cried tears of sadness and joy throughout my read and now more sadness.

Emin's family must be so proud of her for being the amazing lady she is.

❤️ 🌹

I was looking for a funny thread in classics when I came across this. I never thought it would end like that. What an inspirational woman Emin was, thank God there are people like her. RIP.

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.

This is so remarkable, inspirational and lovely.

ChippieBeanAndHorro Mon 13-Mar-17 22:10:48

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
