3 min read

Foster care is definitely a full-time job. Children that are being placed usually come from a broken home and need attention and commitment from whoever takes them in. Therefore, it’s important to secure a good match between child and foster parent; that’s why exploring the options is an important step.

Learn the Types of Foster Care

Emergency Fostering-Emergency care is a situation in which the child only needs somewhere safe to stay for a few nights or weeks. The rotation in this type of fostering is hectic, so if a carer can’t handle it they should consider another type.

Breaks– Children who have special needs undoubtedly have very committed parents. However, when learning to care for these children which is an ongoing process gets to be too much, these parents need a break. These short breaks provided by loving fosters enables a child to stay with an agreed upon person while the parents regroup and learn how to cope with the condition.

Short-term placements-Not all children are homeless that go into foster care. Sometimes there will be a stick situation as far as where the child will be placed. Perhaps relatives are fighting over them, or the agency is investigating the best placement. In this scenario, carers look after them for a couple weeks to a few months while arrangements are made.

Long-term orpermanent placement-Long-term fostering refers mostly to children who don’t wish to be adopted, but simply need a responsible adult to watch over them until they become adults themselves. Usually they stay in contact with their birth parents and family, and it’s a case where they just can’t move in with anyone else. The carers help them reach adulthood and teach them how to survive on their own.

Kinship and Private Fostering– This type of fostering includes children that are not looked after by the local authority, and get the chance to live with their aunt, uncle, sister, brother, grandparents or other family member. There is minimal federal involvement in these situations.

Private fostering is when the parents make arrangements with someone outside the family to stay with them for a prolonged and agreed upon time period. Rules are put in place and followed for the betterment of the child.

Be Very Open-minded- Always

No two cases are the same, so it’s important for possible foster carers to be prepared for anything. Though some cases lead to adoption there’s no guarantee. The foster must be willing to offer up what the child needs as far as a loving and stable environment with the knowledge the relationship may end.

Still, the sense of happiness that comes from helping a child have a good life is immense. Experienced carers claim that they gain much from the giving, and wouldn’t change a thing about their experiences. It certainly takes a strong and loving person to open their home and lives as they do.

Of course, adoption does happen. If one is looking to adopt this may be a faster route to doing so, however there are no guarantees. If looking to adopt, it should be expressed to the counselor so they can place long-term children with the foster who have a good outlook as far as making it a permanent living arrangement.
