What are something's i need to know to become a foster parent?
I was once in Foster Care before and I watched movies about foster parents and plus i know someone that is a foster parent and i just want too know what are the qualifications in becoming a foster parent I want too care for others to.
My name is Jozlyn Johnson and I just turned 18 on Monday
I see you are just turning 21 so you may want to also look into volunteering at Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Its a wonderful program and you could also be a Big Brother!
Good luck to you and hope that everything works out for you!

Honestly, all of these details aren't what matters most. The most important thing a foster parent has to have is a heart willing to give love and time to a child who really needs it. Since you said you have been in foster care, you know what it can feel like to be separated from family, for whatever reason, and suddenly find yourself in a strange place with strange people. Foster children need support, love, and understanding. And the hardest part for you may be that you provide all of that, and then you have to let them go, if the courts decide to move them to a different foster setting, or they are reunited with their family. Despite all this, I would strongly encourage you to become a foster parent. You can make such a positive difference in the life of a child, and I wish you the very best of luck!
