Foster Parents Tell What It’s Like Fostering Older Children

Invest time in them, give them guidance, give them time, listen to them and let them talk. Those are just a few of the statements made by those who have fostered teens. They also want you to know that teenagers in foster care are not all trouble. They are individuals who need everything that every other child needs. Although it may be challenging, every little success means a feeling of great reward. Watching them succeed as you love them toward that success creates satisfaction.

“Don’t be afraid.  Give them a chance.”
