How do I know if I'd be a good foster parent?
Foster Parenting requires a lot of patience and compassion. Foster parents understand that the children that come to them are hurting and that it takes a long time to reduce that pain and change the resulting behaviors. You have to be 18 years old, be of good moral character, be in good health, have an adequate income, and meet other basic standards.
