Submitted by an Oconee Foster Mama:
I used to think I needed to wait until my kids were older before we could start fostering. I thought they needed to be able to understand kids coming and going and I needed to protect them from the stories the kids come with. I was so wrong. Allowing my kids to become foster siblings has been the best thing I could do for them. They jump right in to help, they are patient to wait while I have my hands full with bonus babies, they understand not all kids come from safe, loving homes like they do, and they love with their whole hearts.
