Introducing Foster Fridays

by Luanne and Marisha

We want to expand this blog from strictly adoption (with random forays into the arts) to include the concerns of foster children.  To highlight this expansion, we’re going to focus on foster children and fostering and foster adoptions on Fridays.  These topics aren’t limited to Fridays and we might talk about adoption on Fridays, too, but for now we’re going to post information about fostering every Friday.

If you were a foster child or are a foster parent or have adopted a foster child, we’d love to publish your story on the blog.  Send to our email at marishaandluanne[at]gmail[dot]com.

  4. Great idea. I, too, am about to adopt as a foster carer. Our experiences are similar to other adopters in some ways but completely different in others!

  5. Hi, just got an inbox to write you… I am an adoptive, foster and kinship mom who believes in heart mother parenting, tummy mother parenting and God mother parenting.
