Children Come into care for a number of reasons. Some were victims of physical or sexual abuse. Others were victims of neglect that put their safety at risk. What each of these children has in common is their current temporary need for someone to serve in a parental capacity for an undetermined period of time.
So what does that mean to you? It means that nobody can tell you how long each child will stay with you, but they need you just the same.
Fun is something many foster children never learned.
You may be called upon to help a child learn tasks a child that age should already know, such as how to brush their teeth or hold a fork.
A foster parent is someone who may have to help teach a child about unconditional love.
