Furniture should be as versatile as possible – some beds can be used for a wider range of ages than others so consider that when making a purchase. You should be prepared for the possibility of things getting broken too. So, while you won’t want the room to look cheap you may want to fit it with good quality second hand furniture that can be replaced. Empty frames give children the option of putting out their own photos or pictures and a nightlight can also be a useful addition. Don’t forget to take into consideration safety – if you’re planning to care for young children you’ll need to fit items like cord tidies for blinds to help prevent any accidents.
When the child arrives you’ll want to make them feel welcome and as comfortable as possible, so try and prepare for their arrival in the same way you might if welcoming a family member to stay. The room itself should be clean and tidy but try not to go too overboard on decorations or filling the room with toys as this might make the child feel overwhelmed. Often a child can arrive hungry and may be shy of asking for food, so you may want to consider laying out a snack for them.
We didn’t tell many people what we were doing so it was a shock to most when we announced to the world that we were parents all of the sudden. We had our reasons for not telling people what we were doing, mostly we were scared, nervous, and not sure if we would ever actually follow through with being a foster parent.
You want your foster child to feel comfortable in their room so it is important to understand if they want to spend time in their room, especially at first. If you are happy with food and drinks in the bedroom then you could leave a snack in their room for when they arrive, as they may too shy to ask for something to eat at first.
