    Re: foster mom V.S my B.F

    Thanks for sharing a little of your story with us. It sounds like you’re in a tough position between your foster mom and a new boyfriend that she doesn’t like. It’s probably really difficult to have to balance the two. It’s great that you can see the good in your boyfriend. Do you think it’s possible that your foster mom just needs to get to know him? Sometimes it’s a lot easier to judge someone on their past mistakes if you don’t really know them. Can you think of anything that’s within your control to help your foster mom get to know your boyfriend better? You should be proud of yourself for respecting your foster mom by not letting him come in the house. It sounds like this situation is especially difficult because the main problem is that your foster mom doesn’t like your boyfriend. The hardest situations to be in are ones where someone else’s actions and reactions is what needs to change in order to make things better. There’s probably not one way you can handle all this, but it’s great that you’re trying to respect your foster mom’s rules while maintaing a postive relationship with your boyfriend. Hopefully you’ll be able to figure out a way to continue to balance the two in a constructive way. If you want to talk to someone in depth about any of this, you’re welcome to call our hotline anytime 24/7. We’re not here to tell you what to do or what not to do, we just want to be a listening ear and offer encouraging words. Someone is always here. Best of luck.
