God, grant me the SERENITY to accept the foster care bureaucracy I cannot change;
(So that I don’t go crazy, banging my head against the weird foster care way of doing things)
The COURAGE to change the foster care shortcomings that I can;
(‘Cuz it takes a whole lot of backbone to face-off with the Agency)
And the WISDOM to know the difference.
(So I may give joy to the children entrusted in my care and help unite them with their families, while still enjoying my wonderful life.)
