促进支持:捐赠活动

By 考特尼Edge-Mattos 2024年5月7日

并不是每个人都适合寄养家庭.  不是每个人都处在人生的正确阶段, 有一个灵活的时间表吗, or has the space within their home to add another person.  Not everyone’s household members agree with the idea of fostering.  Not everyone has the health and wellbeing to commit to 寄养.

虽然寄养并不适合所有人, there is nearly no limit to who can contribute to the foster

我们最喜欢的四个字母的单词:青少年

By 考特尼Edge-Mattos 2023年11月17日

青少年…我们最喜欢的四个字母的单词…

Teen…Seven years of growth, excitement, fear, expectations, and change.

Teen…A stage of development not unlike that of a toddler, but in a frame closer to an adult.

青少年,我们最需要帮助的人群.

Recently, a person on our social media feed sparked conversation about teens.  他们发表了标准的声明,说青少年很坚强.  真正的.  所有年龄和阶段都有欢乐和挑战.  Teen challenges are notorious and often have larger consequences

莱利 Borden was 14 and in middle school when the state Department of Children & Families removed her and her younger brother from their father’s home and placed her in the first of what ultimately would be seven foster homes.

那是一段艰难的时光, but 莱利 did not let it deter her from planning a successful future — a future that will include going to college in September, 把她放在少数人中

为什么人们选择寄养?

By 考特尼Edge-Mattos, LSWA 2023年6月20日

The reasons are varied, but generally boil down to these five points.

 

选择培养

做一束光:

你’ve gone through hard things and had someone who helped you come out the other side.  现在你想把爱传递出去!  The flip side- you went through hard things and wish you’d had someone to guide you.  现在你将成为你希望拥有的那个人!

培养恐惧:如何管理培养的恐惧

By 考特尼Edge-Mattos, LSWA 2023年5月26日

寄养是一个巨大的承诺. 

光是审批程序就需要半年时间.  It is the embodiment of the old adage “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

然而,许多人从来没有迈出第一步.  美妙的, 稳定的, 情绪健康, 种类, 善意的, 适应力强的人会保持原地不动——兴趣, but unable to bring themselves to hit send on the application.  Other times, they send and when the Homefinder contacts

支持寄养的悲伤儿童

By 考特尼Edge-Mattos, LSWA 2023年2月28日

寄养是在悲剧和创伤中诞生的. 寄养儿童进入寄养家庭的儿童, whether it is shortly after birth or during the late teen years, 是不是已经和熟悉的人分开了.  Many people first think only of the loss of one’s parents and siblings, 但当我们剥开表层, we realize that children and youth in 寄养 suffer a myriad of losses simply by entering care.  除了立即失去
