Rewards of Foster Parenting
Sometimes the rewards of foster parenting come in small but significant steps. Many of the foster parents we have worked with over the years have told us about the deep sense of accomplishment they feel in having the opportunity to help a child feel good about themselves.
They take pride in doing truly meaningful work that, while sometimes challenging, has helped them develop special talents and knowledge. One of the gifts of foster parenting is that many foster parents learn to pay attention every day for the positive changes they see in their foster child. And, they note, 'when you get into the habit of looking for the good things every day it transitions into all aspects of your life'.
They also know that these kids will grow up to be our next generation of employees, leaders and parents, and they as a foster parent can help them succeed.
