I wrote a letter to an old foster parent this month. (July 2005) They were the LeBretons. Having lived there for approximately four years from the age of 9 until I was thirteen, I formed quite a bond with them. They treated us like we were their own boys. I also have the best memories of my childhood from this home and it's surrounding neighborhood.
While I was working on the support web site for former foster kids, I recieved a phone call from Georges LeBreton. (Pappa) He talked to me for about a half hour, and we got along great. He told me "you were a good kid" which almost brought me to tears to hear from him. He also told me that Maria LeBreton, (Mama) had passed away a couple of years ago. I have cried a few times already at hearing this news, because I really like her and wanted to visit her again.
I don't know what else to write right now, I am a little zoned out from this, so I will write more later. We also talked about making a visit to each other some time in the near future which I am looking forward to emensely. (Georges LeBreton from Burnt River (near Fenlon Falls)
