From one of our AMAZING foster parents:

You know what’s hard…throwing everything you’ve ever known about parenting out the window because it doesn’t work with this little one and their life experience. Trying something different and completely upside down from what you’ve known and done for the last 17 years is hard.
But what’s harder is realizing you should’ve tried something different a long time ago. Having daily battles is much harder on you both and everyone in your home.
But what’s hardest is EVERYTHING she’s been through and finding the humility to undo what you’ve always done to adapt to her needs.
We’re a work in progress, always in progress with so far to go, but by the grace of God we’re learning because she’s worth it.

Developing trust is often hard for kids who have come from hard places. PACE is an acronym and helpful tool that reminds caregivers to be Playful, Accepting, Curious, and Empathetic when interacting with their children, even during moments of discipline. When exhibited consistently by caregivers, the attitude of PACE conveys to the child that they are safe, loved, heard, understood, and valued. For more info about PACE check out this link: https://ddpnetwork.org/about-ddp/meant-pace/

This year, over a quarter of a million children will enter foster care homes. Foster parents offer temporary full-time care for children whose parents, for many reasons, can’t care for them. Foster care requires big adjustments for both foster parents and children. Being a foster parent is no easy task, but we want to help and support your family in becoming one through HOPE Foster Care. Please call us today to find out more information! If you are in the Macon area, call 478-464-3016. If you are in the Columbus area, call 706-587-8862.

4 Lessons for Every Foster Parent | The Forgotten Initiative

“As children in your care are trying to make sense of all that is happening around them, and as you, the grown-up, try to figure out your next step, there are bumps and hiccups. It isn’t a smooth ride, because well, we’re imperfect adults trying to do our best for imperfect children. We have to grow together, offer a whole lot of grace for one another, and commit to continuing to learn.”
Check out this awesome article with tips from former foster youth here:
