‘What in the world are you doing?!’ My son was about to chow down when I stopped him. ‘I made myself dinner.’: Foster mom shares heartbreaking story of son’s trauma, ‘we must not give up, our kids didn’t’

“‘I wanted to eat something I used to eat a lot with my old family.’ He said they wouldn’t feed him due to being passed out (you can guess why). He’d make dinner for himself and his brothers. All the money they had was spent on cigarettes, so he’d find change in their van and buy Ramen packets at the store down the street, at 6 years old! I walked away in shock, in sadness, and so, so so proud of how strong my baby is.”
