Let me just say…Foster Parenting is not always the same thing as Parenting. I am not saying that parenting your biological children is always easier. I know it can be very difficult, confusing and frustrating. Foster parenting is simply different.
The biggest disadvantage is that the children have most likely suffered some kind of trauma(most children are in foster care because of neglect).
This is a place for finding advice, hopefully learning something and sharing experiences.
Do you want to become a foster parent, or maybe you are kind of being forced into it.
Becoming a foster parent is one of the most rewarding things we have ever done. BUT!!!
Ya, that’s a huge BUT.
Do not go into it for the personal “rewards” !
Let me just tell you right now.
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU!!!
If you’re going to do this thing it has to be about the kids!
