Popular vlogger, Carla Bubblelush, talks with her fans about the most recent foster child placement in their home.  After having had to say good-bye to a foster son – one they really connected with and loved dearly – they have now been given an opportunity to share their love with others.  A month after their little John left, they received a call from the placement department.

Carla and her husband are good foster parents, but they also know boundaries.  They know what they can and can’t do for children.  When this call came from the placement desk, Carla said “no” to a couple of the sibling groups presented.  But then they said yes to two boys.  Having been in the system for a few months, Carla and her husband are excited to take them in.  She shares details in this video.
