Our Foster Parent experience….
My boyfriend and I have been foster parents for the past 5 years. It was a big change at first for us and our kids, but we have all grown and embraced the changes. We have had many trials of which we overcame by using positivity, love, structure, and routine. The support of C.A.S. workers has also benefitted us as well as the children. Love, patience and compassion have been strong points in our daily living; resulting in added trust within our family. The foundation of these components, no matter what age, seems to enable the children to strive for a better future. Best of all, they now have increased self-worth and value. My sister and brother-in-law have been watching over the years how these changes can be positive and have now started into fostering as well.
