I Want YOUR Quote in My Book.

I’m writing a book (and have three publisher appointments this month).


a. present an accurate view of foster care

b. inspire people to step up and foster (or if they can’t foster, to support those who do)

I’d appreciate your input. Comment below to answer all or some of the questions (or write whatever you want). Be as detailed or as brief as you like. Alternately, send your response to if you’d rather. 

Also, if you’re willing, please repost this to your blog or other outlet directing people back to to post answers so I can collect them.

THANKS for your help!

*In your response, please include a name (pseudonym is fine) for quote purposes. 

  1. What is your experience with foster care?

  2. Is foster care important/necessary? (please explain why/why not)

  3. Was your experience positive or negative, and what made it so?

  4. Who should foster?

  5. Other than the obvious (e.g., people with legal or abuse issues, etc.) who shouldn’t foster?

  6. What are legitimate reasons to foster?

  7. What are not legitimate reasons to foster?

  1. When I was 12 I went into the system. When I was 13 I met my first family, they told people I wasn’t safe and a liar. When I was 14 I met the second family, I got sick and they told me if I couldn’t go horse back riding in 12 degree weather with the flu I didn’t need to be apart of the family. when I was 15 I met the best people in the world and my whole perspective on life was changed.

    • The first part of your note brought tears to my eyes. The last sentence changed them to happy tears. Are there specific things they did that really made the difference? (If like to know both for the book and for selfish reasons, since we are parenting a preteen and teen.)


  2. I think that is great that you are writing a book! People need to hear your wise words! I wish you the best with it!!
    I don’t have any experience with foster care so I feel like I can’t adequately answer these questions but I hope you do get a lot of feedback.
