Supporting Foster Children
Check out this beautiful article in The Huffington Post about how to help foster children. Not everyone is able to be a foster parent, but even if you can’t bring a child into your home, there are still other ways that you can support children in foster care and foster families. There are dozens of things ordinary people can do to help ease the transition for the children and provide support for their families, such as acting as mentors for children who have aged out of the system or collecting suitcases for children who have to carry all their worldly belongs in a trashbag. The article focusses on what the church can do to help support foster children, but the advise is applicable whether or not you’re religious.
