The following lists have been compiled by a foster family with 3 biological children who have been fostering for 6 years, had 26 foster children (ages 4 days to 16 years), and are in the process of adopting for the first time! These lists are just a jumping off point to get you thinking about how your life will be, or already has been, changed by fostering or adopting. Every aspect of everything you do will change.
From how to make your foster child feel more at home, to behavioral signs, books to read, to rainy day activities–this list is sure to benefit foster parents (and kids!).
