The child experienced trauma and anxiety whenever bedtime hit. Most of the time, she was a wonderful, easy-to-handle child, and foster parenting was fulfilling. But at bedtime she was almost unmanageable. The foster father and his wife researched to find something to help them through their trial. Eventually, they found what worked. In this video they share their bedtime solution for their foster daughter who now belongs to them forever.

For this family, foster parenting was rewarding. In the end, adopting became the real joy.
