Appreciating foster parents all month long | Community Spirit
This is a special month, recognizing a group of people who sacrifice so much for children. It is Foster Parent Appreciation Month, and, Families for Kids is honoring those who have offered their hearts, home, and time over the past year. They are calling it “A Day In May”.
Did you know foster parents:
- may be asked to take a child or children at any hour of the day or night, with little notice or information?
- may have to drive children many miles for dental or medical health care services?
- may have to participate in many meetings with multiple professionals and birth families while providing a safe, stable home?
- work through problems with the foster children in their home on really tough days when they've considered quitting?
If you know foster parents, be sure to let them know how much they are appreciated!
