The Foster Care Prayer Guide
Our friends at Christian Alliance For Orphans have developed The Foster Care Prayer Guide to equip you with prayer requests on behalf of kids and families in your community.
Attachment in Foster Care & Adoption (Booklet)
The parenting of children from hard places can be a challenge for many foster and adoptive parents – but there is hope for even the most complex situations. “Attachment in Foster Care & Adoption” gives adoptive and foster parents in-depth insights into why their child may have difficulty adapting to life in a new family – and gives them hope for success. This positive and informative booklet will show you how your child has formed his or her current behavior and offers tips and resources for overcoming their past and building a bond that is rewarding for both you and your child.
Foster & Adoptive Families Need Your L.O.V.E. (Booklet)
There are many different ways to minister to families that have welcomed foster children into their home. This booklet from Focus on the Family makes it clear that struggling foster or adoptive families need their church families to support them during times of trials. While the suggestions in this booklet may not apply to all situations, they represent a general “heart” of foster and adoptive families who welcomed home an emotionally wounded or struggling child. The goal is to provide practical guidance for churches seeking effective ways to support families.
Hope & Healing for Sensory Deprivation (Booklet)
Many adoptive families struggle to understand some of the more challenging behaviors demonstrated by their kids. Sometimes, this is due to a lack of knowledge about sensory processing disorder (SPD) and how it impacts children. This booklet offers families guidance for identifying the signs of sensory processing disorder and provides solid advice for helping SPD-impacted children heal.
Preparing for a Transracial Adoption (Booklet)
When considering transracial adoption, there are a number of questions that arise. “Do I know how to teach my child to interact with a world that will treat him differently because of the color of his skin?” “Am I prepared to help my child respond to the extra attention and curiosity that comes from others as we ‘stand out’ as a transracial family?” This thoughtful booklet by Jason and Trisha Weber was created to help parents think through questions like these, and to point out practical ways to find the answers.
Love and Loss in Foster Care (Booklet)
The fear and uncertainty that come with foster care and adoption can cause many families to shy away from pursuing what God is asking of them. Author and adoptive father Johnston Moore challenges families to examine their fears and concerns in the light of God’s promises as they step out in faith to welcome vulnerable children into their homes.
