I’d like to give a quick shout out to my sister @maddie_roper 🖤
She definitely doesn’t get enough credit and itd be hard to live my life without her! Not just because she’s my sister, but she goes above and beyond that to be a great dog aunt and foster aunt!! Before GRACE headed off to her forever home, my sister made sure to come say her goodbyes. And she was crying just save much as I had about saying our see you laters and wishing GRACE the best life!! Madi is a huge role in my life. She didn’t want me to foster originally. I don’t blame her. She knew I’d try to keep every dog and how much my heart would break every time a dog moved on.
Anyone else would’ve left. I gave her the opportunity, knowing how much work my house already was with five dogs. I gave her the opportunity to not help me, and taking on this path completely on my own. Which is typically how my story goes.
But not only did she stay, but she has loved each and every foster as if it were my own or her own dog!
When I can’t get off work early, or am at school all day. When I take a vacation and she hasn’t had one in months. When I need a night out or plan something fun for myself, she is the only person I can count on and trust to help with ALL of the dogs.
She is the only person that really physically helps me with the dogs. Cleaning kennels, potty rotations, feedings, playtime! Everything!! When I can’t be there for the dogs, she steps up! Every single time!! As much as I would like to think that I could foster completely on my own, my life would be a million times more difficult without her!! So thank you!!! Things like GRACE finding her forever home couldn’t happen without Madi! Because I couldn’t take this on without her!!! 🖤
I hope you know how much I love and appreciate you! How much the dogs love you!! Everyone freaks out as soon as you say Aunty Madi!! They know!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being on my team, on the dogs team, and supporting me doing something that has expanded my heart in a million ways! You’re a special person! Not many people can do what you do!! Don’t forget that!! 🖤 #fosteringsaveslives #fosterauntsmatter #xoxo #thankyou .
