A Safe Place

Growing up, my mom worked extremely hard in order to financially provide for my small family. Now that I’m an adult, I appreciate the long hours she worked at the factory so that she could afford to buy food and clothes for my sister and me. Unfortunately, due to my mom’s work schedule, my sister and I were forced to stay at relatives’ homes after school each day. Because we stayed at so many different people’s homes, our bus driver always got confused about the location he needed to drop us off at. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of leaving your kids at a safe daycare facility each day. Enjoy!

Becoming A Foster Parent


If you decide to become a foster parent, you will begin a very rewarding journey that will be good for you and for the children you end up caring for. There are so many wonderful things about becoming a foster parent. This article will cover some of those rewarding things and give you some information on what you can expect to go through in order to become a licensed foster parent.

You will be helping children

The best thing about becoming a foster parent is you will be helping children who are in need of someone to care for them while they go through a difficult time in their life. You can be there for them and take them in when they are hurting. You can become a part of their healing process and help them to feel safe and secure at a moment when they are experiencing hardships.

You can fill your home with children

Another benefit of becoming a foster parent is you will be able to fill your home with children. If you already have children, then you can bring foster siblings into your home for your own children to connect with and learn to have compassion for. If you don't have children, then you will be able to enjoy the benefit of having a home with children in it.

You may be able to adopt

If you are becoming a foster parent with the hopes of someday adopting one or more children, then you can find this may become a reality. In many cases, people become foster parents in order to take in specific children, such as children of acquaintances, friends or family members and fostering them is a step in the adoption process to get the children in the home faster. In other cases, people become foster parents to take in unknown children with the hopes of it possibly leading to adoption in the future. Sometimes, people take in foster children, fall in love with them and then end up being able to adopt them.

The process for becoming a foster parent

The process to become a foster parent includes filling out paperwork, having background checks done on the adults in the household, having home visits, having interviews, fire inspections, training, and other steps depending on the state you reside in. Once you are approved to become foster parents, you can possibly foster the children you began the process for and receive calls to take in other children who are in need.
