No foster parent does it alone: How we found support — 3 Comments

  1. I wish I had some sort of support from fellow foster parents. The only time I ever see any of them is at the holiday party in December and sometimes when I have one sibling of a group to arrange visits. Maybe it is different in Milwaukee, but in Racine there isn’t any way to network. Also the community can be tricky. It seems many people think that a child is in foster care because the child is the problem and is a trouble maker. I have educated most of the neighbors what the real deal is but there are still parents who don’t want their kids playing with “my kids.”

    • Hello Scott, I advice that you join online community, where you can talk about your problems and concerns to people who can understand and help you. Try searching on online directory of groups or organizations that are near in your community, I’m sure there are. 🙂

      It’s just a phase, you’ll be able to handle things. 🙂

      • Hi Scott, so sorry to hear that. There is a great community on facebook called foster and adoptive parents. Id sat half of the group is based in the milwaukee area but some members are even overseas. Its a great way to connect even if its not in person. Stay stong and best wishes!
