The Experience Of Fostering Children

It takes a lot of patience and hard work to foster children. For Fairbury resident Elaine White the foster program provides her family with the chance to help children and their families to re-unite.
“We have fostered 21 children in our home so far, but to become a foster parent you must first go through training at a foster agency of your choice,” White said. “There are a lot of foster agencies to choose from and once you choose, the agency will help set your training schedule.” 
Before a family can foster, they must go through 30 hours of training that cover topics geared toward helping foster children and their families. After the training is complete the agency will conduct a home study to make sure the household is safe. If everything clears, the family can begin fostering children.
