DA Blodgett St Johns teach us that a home is a place where people feel loved, accepted and safe. It’s so much more than a building – it’s a feeling. Still, how a home looks is also important. Looking like a prison will make it feel like a prison to the people who live there. Making a home look welcoming and comfortable will go a long way toward creating the right feeling.
Whether a residential home, a single family foster, or adoptive home, welcoming a child with love and a safe location will help in the adjustment. Building hope is a vital part of successful relationships in foster care. Making a difference in children’s lives will make a difference in their futures as adults. And this success will trickle down to the next generation. “Home is where you feel safe.”
