Foster Child's Prayer
Who art in Offices,
Give me this day good care from my real family.
Lead me not away from them to a placement in Manchester.
Forgive me my self-harming, because I canít help it.
Though I canít forgive you.
Deliver me from meetings when people talk over me.
For yours is the power,
The people and the paperwork.
For ever and ever.
