Foster Care Videos

Fostering is a journey, as any foster parent will tell you. It’s not always easy, it’s hardly ever simple but it always matters. We want to share the laughter, tears and love of all our families through our foster care videos so that you may one day consider joining our foster care community.

Brian and John never could have imagined the joy that would come from being foster parents. Watch how two men fostered four kids, dealt with a drug addicted baby, and handled the hardest moment of their lives. To FAFS, they and their family are true #FosterCareSuperheroes.

At Foster and Adoptive Family Services (FAFS) and the Division of Child Protection and Permanency’s (DCP&P) Annual Recognition Brunch, we asked members of the foster care community about how they continue to thrive and grow their family trees.

Lisa never expected to be a parent. But when her niece had nowhere else to go, she opened her home. But what happened when Lisa needed someone to turn to? Through FAFS, Lisa met Karen who was there to welcome her to the world of fostering. Together, they pulled through.

FAFS’ Heart to Heart Mentoring program connects experienced resource parents with new and existing resource parents for extra support and guidance. Mentors understand the concerns, issues and daily challenges in foster, adoptive and kinship care because they have gone through similar experiences.
