Finding the motivation to continue being a foster parent — 4 Comments

  1. Thank you! I am just embarking on my foster care journey. A little scared and yes that word quit has popped up in my head. I am reading a great book right now about just that topic. Five Habits of a Woman who doesn’t quit.

  2. That sounds like a great book. The journey through foster care is the most impactful and rewarding thing I have ever done with my life. However it is difficult too and will push you beyond what you thought you could handle. BUT you can do it, you can keep going and find your rhythm with the new child(ren) in your home and find this great place of beauty and impact – impact on that child but also on you. Wishing you all the best as you begin this journey.

  3. Nice review. We were foster parents to high risk teen males and I found my buttons were pushed for all kinds of responses…from “love me” to “I can get something on you” to ” your not my boss” to “why do you care so much”. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you Sheri, and thank you for the time you spent investing into teens in care!
