Foster Care

Preparing for Foster Care: Am I really cut out for this?

Attachment in Traumatized Children, that is the name of the licensing class my husband and I took last night. It is one of about 14 classes we are taking to fulfill our required 41.5 hours of training. I know that the things we are learning are preparing us for properly caring for the future children who are placed in our home, but my husband and I couldn’t help but relate some of the information to our bio children. Have we been parenting them with enough grace? Have we been wrongly putting adult expectations onto them? Have we been listening to them enough? Do our children feel like we care about their needs?
