Thank you for coming to NewFound Families Virginia for your foster parenting questions. 

Foster Care is a service provided to children to ensure they have a temporary home where they can be safe and nurtured while decisions are made by the child welfare system and courts about their birth parents' ability to care for them. 

Foster parents are vital members of the service team put together to keep children safe and help them heal from the impact of abuse, neglect, abandonment, or removal from their family home. At times, their experience can be complicated and full of surprises. They face a daunting variety of physical and emotional special needs all a once, and frequently do not know where to turn for support. 

There are times when foster parents are asked to provide a more permanent home for older youth when adoption is not an option. This may be because the youth wants to retain a lifelong connection with a birth family member or an adoptive family has not been able to be approved for the youth. 

Navigating the path of any foster care placement is not always clear, and frequently seems uncharted. Foster Parents find themselves wanting answers, and sometimes do not know the questions to ask. NewFound Families has created this packet to provide perspective and current foster parents with support and resources to find answers to their questions, as well as strengthen their families, and overcome the challenges of being a foster family.
