    Preparing your children before you become a foster parent

    Preparing your children before you become a foster parent

    In today's podcast were answering one of the questions we get asked the most.

    People tell me all the time they want to foster or adopt but they are afraid of how it will affect their children.

    I also hear people answer that statement with a lot of judgemental answers. The truth is that is a legitimate concern. But just because it is a legitimate concern doesn't mean it should hold you back.

    today Leslie and are chatting about how we think you can prepare your family to be a foster family.

    Don't miss at the Together for adoption and fostering Canadian conference in Waterloo Ontario. https://form.jotform.com/90289040959264?fbclid=IwAR3a52t06Ng1FBB-QJI3pEqbBqIOPCJsQEA5vPy6ZCtEM3ufdqcnkhLO3tI
