With foster care you can’t be certain what race the children placed with you will be. You can get a vague idea by looking at the demographics of your community, but you can’t be certain. Stock up on books that depict as many different children and families as possible. Buy dolls, action figures, and movies that depict diversity.
One of the fundamentals of applying to become a foster carer is that you are able to provide a child you are caring for with a bedroom all of their own. This is so they feel safe and protected. During the application process you will specify what age and gender of children you would like to care for and when it comes to preparing a room for the child’s arrival, this can help a little.
Once you start your journey into Foster Care, some people become very anxious. When will I get “the call” for my first placement? Who will it be? Am I prepared enough? Am I ready for this journey? How do I set up my foster care bedroom?!
Most foster parents I know keep a small stash of stuffed animals on hand. You’d be surprised that even older kids often appreciate this. You don’t need a bunch, just keep a few different ones in the closet and let a new placement pick their favorite.
