Fostering Voices Podcast

Aug 17, 2019

This week we just want to encourage our fellow foster families out there!

Encouragement 1:

Sometimes your family, and even friends, may not be on board with your journey in foster care. You aren't alone in this! We have run into different people who have not been supportive of our choices. That's ok! We are still very thankful for the people who continue to walk by us! And we are here to walk alongside YOU!

Encouragement 2:

If you are in need of supplies - like clothes, beds, cribs, mattresses, birthday presents - there are resources out there for you! For Free!

Check out your local Facebook Groups for foster and adoptive parents. We get lots of great stuff from various groups we are in. Also, we will throw out requests on our personal Facebook pages and we have gotten great things donated like bunk beds, an amazing trumpet, clothes, etc. Don't be afraid to ask others for help!

We also just discovered Arizona Helping Hands, and they are amazing! Check them out if you are in need of anything!

Encouragement 3:

Change your mindset if you are in a rut feeling like you are stuck in a cycle of dislike, head-butting, with someone in your family (or social circle) - you may need to change your attitude towards them. 

We read 'The Connected Child' which has so many great tips to connect with your children. Open hand touch has been a great one for us and our kids.

Good Word of the Day:

"Fear of man will prove to be a snare,
    but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe."

Proverbs 29:25
