Foster and Adoptive Parenting

Every child entering a new foster or adoptive home is a hurting child.  They have been removed from family, friends, their school and community.  Many have experienced domestic violence, abuse, alcohol and/or drug abuse, neglect and dysfunctional family systems.  They may have inadequate relationship and coping skills, developmental delays, a mental health disorder and poor cognitive development.  Biological parents should also educate themselves about the importance of attachment and attachment activities. The following are some of the many websites to assist you in parenting adventure.
