Thanksgiving Tips for Foster Parents

Today when I was walking Moonlight and Shadow through my new neighborhood, I passed a house that had a huge blow-up turkey outside.  Moonlight tried to attack it and Shadow barked as it moved with the bursts of wind.  I stood there, realizing that I really liked it because it was a “happy” turkey and it made me think about the Thanksgivings I experienced in foster care.

If you never read about my first Thanksgiving, READ THIS, which covers it and can provide insight into a foster child’s fears (I just re-read it and found it very moving).  After that first Thanksgiving, some were good, some were bad, and some were non-existent.  As I stood there looking at the happy turkey blow-up, I thought of things that were really meaningful to me as a foster kid… at Thanksgiving.
