If you only have one bedroom devoted to foster care, I would highly suggest a neutral paint color. You might think you are only taking boys, or only taking girls. But I’ve known many a foster parent to change their mind when the bedroom is empty and a little one has nowhere else to go. If you pick a more neutral paint color, it’s easy to personalize the walls with hanging art or wall stickers. My personal favorite color for adaptability is light green.
First think about what your age range is, and then think about what kids that age might need immediately after arriving (before a shopping trip can happen). The main thing I would say every foster parent should have on hand is extra tooth brushes. That’s a definite for all ages. Combs and brushes. Baby shampoo. Deodorant. Hair detangler is a big one that foster parents often find they need immediately. If you plan to take babies or toddlers, pacifiers and a small pack of diapers in every other size are a good idea to have on hand. If you are open to taking emergency placements you might want to keep a stash of jammies, socks, and underwear in the drawer, although most clothing can be bought quickly, 2AM calls mean no time for shopping.
