Advice from an 11 Year Old Foster Child

Here’s a little advice for being in foster care:

You may be scared or sad, but know that there are people taking care of you.

Don’t be afraid to say anything important.

Try to get used to it so you feel comfortable at your new home.

If you’re new to foster care don’t think you won’t be able to see your parents.  Most kids get to visit them regularly.

The more information you give, the closer you are to getting back with your parents.

Try to have fun, make friends, and have a good time; the less you think about it, the more you will find time flies by!

Enjoy your visits and try to talk to your parents.
