Is Foster Parenting for you?
By Jeffrey Silla
Are you interested in becoming a foster parent? Yes! Then you've come to the right place for thoughts and ideas that will help and encourage you in this new venture. In life, learning takes place when a person has a challenge to tackle. The challenge of foster parenting uses skills that are best learned when you have a foster child in your home "living with you". With this in mind, you will need to receive additional input from: parenting books, parenting videos, foster parents and training classes. Then you must put into practice what you learn! The best place to start your journey to become a foster parent is to visit a local foster parent. This person will be the key to starting and developing your foster parenting skills. The next best place to contact is your "Children and Youth" office to get information on "Foster Care Agencies". Typically after contacting the Foster Agency you will receive a large application. You will be asked to provide information on past residences, people you have lived with, reasons you want to be a foster parent, a physical with medical testing, references, how your home is set up, where the foster child will sleep, your education, job history and much more. During this process, you must also decide what type of child you would like to have in your home. So, you must decide if you have preferences regarding the child's age, their sex and the level of difficulty of care. This means on one hand there are children that can be responsible and mature for their age and on the other hand there are children that can't even feed themselves. Be fair with yourself and know your limits to deciding what type of child you would welcome into your home. Are you willing to do the work necessary to handle a child who has medical, physical, social, or other difficult problems? If you say, "Yes!" and make that commitment then you will be successful.

4. Foster Parenting
Has a newspaper advertisement ever changed your life? Well, one sure changed ours.
Foster Parenting
Needless to say, we were a bit wary now about the foster care system, but those fears were put to rest with our next placement about a month later. At that time, we had a two-and-a-half year old African-American boy placed with us. And about 6 months later, we were fortunate to have his one-year-old half brother placed with us. They also have a two-year-old sister, who we had planned on taking in as well, but that never came to pass. The boys stayed with us until early November 1995, and during their time with us, they were a source of constant joy for us. It really killed us when they left, because we had grown so attached to them, but we had to let go. However, if they ever come up for adoption, we're seriously considering being first in line. I should also mention that we also had a 10-year-old boy placed with us for about a year. He, too, was basically a good kid (even though he was constantly getting in trouble at school), but his behavior slowly changed to a point where we thought it would be detrimental to the 2 younger boys if he continued living with us, so he was placed with another foster family. Right now, we are in the Alabama foster care system, and have no children placed with us. Our last long-term care was a 17 year old African-American girl. She graduated from High School this year (1997), and decided to move out of state once she turned 18. I give a lot of credit to the Department Of Human Resources social workers here in Huntsville for really caring for the children under their care. Without their help, our foster daughter may not be having the chance to do the things she's done. It was a tough senior year for her, but the support she received from all involved helped her get through that difficult time. We've had quite a variety of children pass through our house this past year. We'll still accept respite children for a weekend or so, but no more long term placements for a few months. But we've said that before....who knows what the future has to bring.

I use sheet protectors — which keep pages safe from little fingers — and place the pages in a 3-prong portfolio cover. Kids in foster care need to feel connected to their past. This life-book will help a child maintain links with his/her past while in your home and help him/her carry memories from their time in your family to their new home when they leave. These pages can also help maintain the bond between the parents and your foster child if you send a few pages with the child to their family visits. These books are wonderful treasures, but they also serve an important purpose. When a child leaves your home — whether for the weekend or permanently — the book can help guide the child's new caregiver (whether it's their parents, another foster parent, or an adoptive parent) in understanding the child and easing the child's stress by playing a favorite game, reading a favorite story, or preparing a meal they know the child would enjoy based on the information you've shared here. If you're adopting an older child, these pages are especially suitable for a keepsake "baby book" type of book like you would surely have bought for a child born to you. If you look up "Book Binding" in your local Yellow Pages, you may find a book-binder or restorer who could take these pages and have them bound into a hard-back book for you (often for only $35-$50).

All About Emil -Information on foster parenting, foster care, and all the fun stuff that goes with it.- This website contains information about child abuse, foster care, and adoption. However, my experience in the child welfare field was with foster and adoptive parents. So...most of the articles and stories you will see here concern the foster/adopt parent, their role, and general parenting information. Additionally, you will find a large amount of jokes, quotations, and other items that I find interesting. These literary masterpieces are all original works by me (Emil) or the author's name is given if known. Before retiring, I "did time" as a Foster Care/Adoption Homefinder for around 20 years. As a social worker, my job was to evaluate, train, and provide support for those parents in my region. I have been fortunate to have my articles published on as well as fostering sites, in print, as handouts for training, and so on. Information on how to obtain permission for reprints is given inside. Most things concerning the child welfare system tend to be very serious...that goes without saying. I think that the majority of my articles and stories convey that feel...however...I must warn you that I do have a very strong sense of humor and you will see that as well. This is not your typical, academic-laden, dour, "social werky" type of site. Dealing with the child welfare system creates a lot of stress for all parties concerned. Hopefully, "Emilville" will provide a lighter alternative for those people.

Becoming a Foster Parent
Click here to see our Current Public Service Announcement Foster care is family-based care for children who temporarily are not able to live at home. During the time that children live in a foster home, the foster parents provide the same care that the children's own parents would provide. Foster parents also help the children understand that they will be either returning to their own families or adopted, whichever is the case. Foster parenting is a commitment to make a meaningful contribution to a child's life, although it may not require a lifetime commitment to a child. Being a foster parent is a big responsibility that brings with it big rewards. The requirements for becoming a foster parent are not complicated, and the Division of Youth and Family Services will help you through the steps to become a foster parent and provide training to help you understand the special needs your foster child may have. While a foster child is in your home, the Division provides many supports to assist in their care.

By Pamela Caywood
I am very happy to introduce a new segment of articles which will discuss how to master foster parenting. These articles will be written by Jeffrey Silla. He is the proud father of 7 children (4 of his own and 3 foster children). Six years ago, Jeff and his wife Patty decided to open their home to help raise foster children. Over these years they have had 15 different foster children ranging from 9 weeks old to 19 years old. Each child has a new set of issues and needs. Helping each one to adjust to a new family and improve his outlook has equipped Jeffrey to master many helpful techniques to make this job somewhat easier. Jeff has started up a brand new site dedicated to foster parenting located at These articles will deal with the following topics:
  • How to decide if YOU should become a foster parent How to successfully integrate foster children into your family Setting boundaries that work Dealing with temper tantrums Stop the cursing When do I call the police?

    The Freddy Gruger of Foster Parenting by Barbara Leiner
    When we first enter the world of foster parenting, we are excited, enthusiastic, naive, willing and eager to meet the challenges that face us. We plunge into this endeavor with the expectations of making a better life for a child, and, sometimes a whole family. How many times throughout our foster parenting "career" do we hear the phrase "at risk children"? Do we ever hear "at risk foster parents"? No. If prospective foster parents knew the perils that lurched inside this crazy world of caring for abused and neglected children, would many continue the recruitment process? I wouldn't think so. Still, I wonder why so many foster parents stay in a field that can turn our world upside down at the whim of one person. I am talking about erroneous allegations. An allegation of any nature is devastating and hard to pull one's self back into the mainstream of everyday life. We are never the same after an accusation a little disappointed, frustrated, confused, embarrassed, hopefully much wiser and that proverbial wall gets a little higher. Accusations can happen to any of us at any time. The neighbor doesn't like foster children living next door to their "perfect" children; thinks it lowers property value. The foster child that thinks he/she will be sent back to live with their biological family if they convince the social worker the foster father has molested them or the foster mother hits them and deprives them of food. Vulnerability is a foster parent's middle name. We are forever and always "at risk".

Since 1953 she provided care for over 5,000 children during 45 years of service. 'Grandma Billie', as all those who know her fondly refer to her as, states that even though she saw some horrific situations she focused all of her energy and thought on the children, not on condeming bad parents. "You don't think about that," she said. "You think about the children." Go to Colbert article! Cory and Marcy Misak have been foster parents for the past four years. They work with United Methodist Youthville and provide a foster home in the Conway Springs area. "I've always wanted a house full of kids, and after our four, I couldn't have any more." Mrs. Misak states " I love kids; I love foster kids. I call them our 'kids of tomorrow.' Anybody who loves kids needs to be doing this." Mrs. Misak is also president of the foster parent association in Wellington and has presented testimony to the Kansas Legislature on foster care issues. Go to Misak article!
