Advice from Current Foster Families: The Challenges and Rewards of Fostering (Part One)

I began fostering four years ago, and am currently a proud parent of three kids. My most challenging experience would have to be starting over with each child, remembering that each one comes from a different background and that my home and the way it’s run is totally foreign to them. Our eight-year-old boy came to us full of questions and fear, with overwhelming anxiety that resulted in full-on floor fits. After four months together, we have gotten to know each other and I now know how to talk to him and show him a healthy way to express anger, sadness, fear, etc. Currently, we haven’t had a fit in weeks. Our two-year-old boy came to us grunting, biting, and lots of screaming, but he quickly accepted us and is now talking on a normal, calm level. He is still boisterous, but now he laughs loudly too. We have had our two-year-old girl since birth, and we are currently in the process of adoption.
