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 may be great with little girls between the ages of X and Z, and think that those are the placements that your are interested in, but that does not take into account the infant or teenage sibling that needs to stay with them. When you make plans, the universe is known to laugh.
You may have an idea of what ages and genders you are willing to say yes to, but understand that the “perfect situation” is probably not going to happen. It might happen on your first placement, if the agency is trying to please you, but it probably will not happen every single time they call you.
Hiding Place (Box for Items) – Some children have “stuff” with them from their home that they want to keep, but they don’t want to see it every day. They don’t want to talk about it, and they certainly don’t want other people having it. Providing a safe place to keep things like this can solve some issues. The child knows their items are safe. Plus, you know where they are and what they are.
