What Are the of Foster Care Rewards?
As a foster parent, you will experience daily rewards. The most powerful reward is the difference you are making in the life of a child and in his or her family. As the foster parent, you are the primary agent for change for the child. While there will be many people on your team supporting you and the child every step of the way, you are ultimately the primary support for the child through his/her journey to achieving permanency. As this support person, you are not only impacting the child, but also his/her family. The rewards of helping a child and family reunite, or helping a child achieve permanency in other ways (i.e. adoption, independent living, etc.) are immeasurable.
