    Aww thank you! I've been crying off and on all day. Such mixed emotions. I'm so happy for him so I have tears of joy. I miss him so I have a few sad tears. And I have a few tears that I feel like I did something good this past week. 😊 Saying goodbye was tough. But he has a fantastic family! He's going to LOVE his life!!

    Aww I'm so glad Lou found a wonderful home and a great family who deserves him. It sounds like he will have a wonderful home on the beach, and a sibling as well. It must have been hard to see him go, but at the same time you can be proud of yourself for what you did for Lou. Your love made a difference in his life, even if it was for just a little while, and now he will have a better life with his new family.

    Aww this brings out the tears First of all I commend you for taking care of this baby, and making sure that he went to a wonderful home. I seriously do NOT know if I could do it, say good-bye that is… You and your family are just pure angels!!!

    Wow, what a wonderful heartwarming outcome. BTW loved the look of Lou right from the first photo you posted. He was Blessed to be rescued, then blessed to be fostered by you and now he has a loving Forever home. Just wonderful news and must be so rewarding for you and your family, the life lessons you daughter is learning is priceless too! My mum used to rescue animals when I was little and I have the same love and compassion for them as she does. But it would be so hard to say goodbye I am a big sook when it comes to things like that. Cheers to you !
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

She saw how attached Lou was to me and felt as though she was taking him from me and me from him. I had to talk to them to convince them that I will be ok. I knew this would happen when I signed up to foster. I just want him to be happy and have a great family that will keep him forever. She said they love him and want to take him if I am ok. I said absolutely and hugged her. All while crying of course! Lol.

    You can be very proud of the wonderful thing you have done. I don't think I could give them up-and he was so cute. It takes a very loving and unselfish person to do rescue work. Be very proud of yourself.

    Thank you everyone! Maybe I'm not as strong as I thought. It's 12:15am and I'm still crying off and on. Lol. But it's happy and sad at the same time. His new Mommy just wrote me on FB to ask questions and send me pics. 😊

    Fantastic news hun xxx
    It is always hard to "let your foster baby go" to a new family ,even tho you know he will be having a great life -and sadly every time you are going to have a little cry ,but the feeling that you made the difference will give you strength to keep going x
    You and your family are fantastic people z
