Love Never Wasted
This week’s webinar will surely pull on your heart strings. Cara breaks down some common myths about foster care and provides some personal insight on how becoming a foster parent has completely changed her life and her family in the best way. If you’re currently certified, fostering a child, have been in the foster system, or just on the fence waiting for the sign to take the next step, you are definitely going to want to check it out.
Here’s just a few bits of information Cara shares:
“I attach so easily; I would be nervous about being attached”
Attaching easily is so much more of a positive attribute than a disadvantage! Children in the foster care system need to learn healthy attachment skills at a young age so that they can carry those skills over into adulthood. The old saying is true, it IS better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. If a child can learn how to build a healthy attachment with you and your family, it could change the trajectory of the rest of their life. Yes, it will be difficult and emotional for both parties if there’s a need for separation, however, each of you has been given a permanent gift to last a lifetime and you will be forever changed.
“How will this affect my family”
The most needed families are the ones who are normal, happy families. The children in the foster system are in need of examples of healthy relationships and families. Removing expectations before you get into fostering is important to get rid of any misconceptions about fostering. Empathy, compassion, and love for your foster child surmounts any obstacles you may face. The relationship of foster parent and child is a therapeutic one. There is a magical thing that happens when you bring a foster child into your home, families are almost always changed for the better; what a better way to teach your family to be compassionate and make the world a better place.
Whatever it is that needs improvement in the foster system, the most important thing to remember is it is not the child’s fault. Getting certified as a foster parent is a beautiful opportunity to be a part of the solution.
