We will focus on what is known of the impact inviting other children into the home might have on your children.  There will be some Power Point slides, activities and plenty of opportunity to talk about what is known of the effect bringing strangers into the home can have on children who already live in the home.  If you want a chance to explore your fears and concerns about foster care in an open forum, please put this date on your calendar.
