You’ve taken all of your training to be a foster parent.  You’ve rearranged bedrooms and bought new beds, clothes, and toys.  You’ve even told your extended family and friends about your plans to be a foster parent.  But how does fostering affect your biological children?  Join us as Jenn Meyer, FAC trainer, and her daughter talk about what it’s like to be in a family that fosters.  We’ll discuss sibling rivalry, what happens when bio children don’t get along with foster children, and how to help your biological children when your foster children reunify.  This training is great for new foster parents or long-time foster parents – we want to hear your stories, too! This course is worth 2 credit hours.
