KidsPeace Podcast

Significant changes are rocking the foster care system in America. What’s next for foster care and the kids who need it?  In this episode of the podcast series “Conversations with KidsPeace,” we mark National Foster Care Month in May by hearing from KidsPeace foster care specialists Bryan Hoffstetter and Rebecca Cade on the challenges they face, how traditional foster care may become a thing of the past, and what keeps them motivated in such a demanding profession.

CELEBRATING NATIONAL FOSTER CARE MONTH

Every May, we stop to recognize our Resource Parents for the many contributions you make to the program and to keeping kids safe.  It is gratifying to see our families living our mission of giving hope, help and healing to children, adults and those who love them.

  • We thank you for your dedication and perseverance getting through each day when the unexpected events crowd out your plans.
  • We thank you for your love and attachment that allow a child to feel worthwhile and important even when they don’t believe it.
  • We thank you for putting the child’s needs ahead of your own needs, rearranging schedules, and being flexible.
  • We thank you for doing the “right thing” for the children even when others can’t understand why you would take care of someone else’s child.
  • We thank you for being an advocate to the child and speaking out.

Be assured you are not insane or super-human.  You are truly loved and appreciated!

FOSTER HOMES NEEDED FOR SIBLINGS

One of the longest relationships that a person has in his or her lifetime is with a brother or sister. These relationships may include sibling rivalry, but they are also a source of strength.

It is difficult enough when a child is separated from a parent and enters foster care.  But to also be separated from a sibling increases the sense of loss and makes the adjustment to a new home more challenging. At KidsPeace, we are making it a goal to keep siblings placed together whenever possible.

Foster care programs face the challenge of having enough homes that can accept siblings.  To meet that challenge, KidsPeace seeks individuals and families who are willing to work with these sibling groups.  A home needs to have a separate bed or bunk bed for each child.  Children of the same sex may share a bedroom.
