The Norris Therapeutic Foster Program
Beyond fostering in practice is helping your foster child’s siblings, helping their foster parents, bringing food to family members who are struggling, fixing dad’s van on the side of the road, bringing tools for dad to use so he can get to work, writing letters to siblings who are getting help in treatment facilities, going to family picnics with your foster child so she can get to know her aunts and cousins, joining foster parent support groups, developing your own support groups, writing blogs so other families can feel not so alone, helping foster parents navigate special education laws, and talking about fostering with anyone who wants to know….just to name a few.
Beyond Fostering: What a great name. Good job Norris. You trained us well.
