Question: I am interested in fostering but my husband is not. What do you suggest?

If you are married or in a serious relationship, I cannot say with enough emphasis how important it is that you only begin the journey to fostering if you are on the same page with your significant other. Fostering is incredibly rewarding but it is also incredibly challenging. It will bring out the best and worst in you and it has a way of bringing to the surface anything you have not dealt with personally or in your relationship. You owe it to your significant other, yourself, and the potential children that come into your home to take the time needed to make sure you and your significant other are ready to take this step.


When you are ready, we recommend you attend orientation together and keep open lines of communication throughout the journey to becoming a foster parent.  For more information on orientation classes available near you, check out our website here.
