better understand foster care

A guide by Grant (Washington)

Products sampled from this guide:
Although I have not had direct experience with foster care, as a father, volunteer, and friend of people who have experienced the foster care system, I wanted to learn a little more about it. These books and DVDs helped me get a better picture of what foster care is actually like, for children and for parents. While foster care can be a really difficult thing for all involved, there is hope, and I think it is important to remember that. Whether you are thinking about fostering, are a current or former foster parent or child, or just interested out of curiosity, I hope this guide will help you gain a better understanding of foster care.
