Foster, Adoptive Parent Blog
Kid Hero, a foster care and adoptive parent blog from the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, offers a collection of short video clips and other stories focusing on firsthand foster and adoptive parents' experiences. Among the many blog entries are the following:
- Our Family's Special Day: Adoption Day portrays the journey of a foster parent who adopted.
- Taking the Leap of Faith to Become a Foster Parent describes the emotional process that led a couple to open their home to vulnerable children.
- Foster Kids Do Not Need Perfect. They Need Love, Laughter and Security provides a glimpse into the life of a licensed foster parent who learned to let go of the need to be perfect.
- My Role As a Foster Parent Advocate for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services highlights the mission of a foster parent advocate—who is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—to support and assist foster parents from a child's initial placement to family reunification, a move to another home, or adoption.
