Question by sherazade_1980: Were you a foster child? What could have made your life easer?
We are thinking of becoming foster/adoptive parents. We have a 4 bedroom house and live in a great neighborhood. We plan on foster up to 3 kids (4 if part of a sibling group), and if they become available, adopt them. (no more than 4 anyway).
However, if they return to their birth parents, or if for some reason they are moved to another place, I want to have done the best I could for them.
What did u miss (or miss currently) in your foster house? what could have done your life easer?
We don’t only want to give shelter. we want to make a difference!

I would say..
Support the child by not saying anything negative about the birth family or the child’s existence up to this point. That is extremely important! Don’t compare now to then. Don’t make them feel guilty for missing.loving their birth parents. Make sure they’re still able to participate in the activities they enjoyed before.
Thanks for asking this question, I’m sure you guys will be great foster parents!
