Home for the Holidays: Forgotten Foster Children

Ever wonder how you can help foster children through the holiday season?  I can honestly say that working with these babies during this time of year is very difficult and depressing.  Children want to be home (or not) and parents want them home (or are completely absent). Putting a band-aid of a gift labeled “boy” or “girl” does not quite foster intimate connections between the child and his or her caretaker.  If you are a foster caretaker, be gracious to these children.  Treat them exactly the same as your own with regards to your family traditions and gift giving.

Please read this beautifully written post from Finicky Philly, one of the contributors to our book:
