Golden Rules to follow to be the best Foster Parent or Parent you can be!

In every situation …

  • ALWAYS BE:  BIGGER, STRONGER, WISER, AND KINDER than the child!
  • WHENEVER POSSIBLE: FOLLOW YOUR CHILD’S NEED!
  • WHENEVER NECESSARY:  TAKE CHARGE in love not anger!

About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.

    • Good afternoon. A foster placement can very well progress into becoming an adoption, but their are NO guarantees that the child that gets placed will eventually be available for adoption.
