Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child? Do you have experience in caring for children? Then you could be a great foster parent for children in need in your community! Are you the relative or kin of a child involved in the foster care system? Are you considering being a relative or kinship care provider?

If this is the first time you are exploring this option, making a decision of this magnitude can often feel overwhelming. Figuring out the first steps in the foster care process may seem daunting, but you are not alone. While this is an exciting experience, it is also a complicated process that can feel at times overwhelming or confusing. You may find at various times you have lots of questions. In order to ensure your questions are answered, many families have found it extremely helpful to have a separate notebook, or app on their cell phone, to keep track of specific questions to ask throughout the process.
