In the midst of all the uncertainties and unknowns that surround what you're doing there are some powerful promises and truths in scripture for you that are constant and sure and worthy to be held on to."

Real Life Foster Mom

**Tips for new foster parents**

*Nothing can really prepare you for what it’s like to actually have a hurting child in your home. That‘s when the real education starts.

*IT IS OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP. Sometimes
foster parents can have an ‘I signed up for this’ mentality—you will get burned out quickly if you try to do this alone.

*Have a support system in place before you start fostering that consists of people who will babysit, bring meals, accompany you to appointments or encourage & help you when things get hard.

*Your excitement to open your home may turn into exhaustion, confusion or regret when a placement comes. This is common & it may take a few weeks or months to settle into your new normal.

*Self care includes exercise, counseling, resting & sometimes taking a break. If you don’t take care of yourself, you cannot effectively care for these children.

*learn what trauma is, what it does, what causes it & what effects it has on children. Become trauma informed.

*Remember that the number one goal of foster care is reunification—this journey is about helping a child/family heal & only if reunification is not a possibility is adoption an option.

*Love each child & don’t be afraid to get attached. These children need to know/feel what an appropriate child-parent relationship is.

*Documentation, documentation, documentation. Document everything.

*It is worth it. The sacrifices made for these children will impact generations. What you are doing matters.

Foster parents, feel free to add your tips in the comments!
