#Write31Days: Day 28 FAQs

When I originally planned out this entire month of blogging, I figured that there would be some questions that people would have along the way. I reserved this entire blog post for FAQs and a little Q&A, and if anyone has asked questions along the way I have saved them up and will be answering them today!


Please remember that I am not an expert, and I barely even have much experience, so if you feel that you have something to add to these questions, please do so in the comments! I will do my best to go back and edit answers that I was not well-informed on.





As always, if you have more questions, you are more than welcome to drop them in the comments or email them to me at [email protected]

We have just a few more days in this series, but I’m pretty much wrapping it up here! I’d love to hear feedback from you on what you have thought of this series and if you found it helpful or not.



If you have any questions at all about foster care or adoption from foster care as I go through this series, please don’t hesitate to ask. You can leave a comment or send an email. At the end of the series, I will have a Q&A day and will be answering any questions I receive throughout the month.

    Here is yet another variation of fostering. Years ago I became a foster parent for a mostly deaf, partially blind, partially retarded 7 year old girl. She stayed at the State school during the week and we picked her up on Friday after school and returned her before bedtime on Sunday, which was before 7pm. She could hear a little bit, so cupped her hand around her ear, and laid on the floor, and rocked back and forth saying rah, rah, rah over and over. They could always find her at the school because of the rah, rah, rah sounds even when she was behind a couch. I could give her personal attention at my house, having her look at books and telling me in sign language the words she knew from the pictures. I tried to teach her to use scissors and get interested in playing with toys. Teaching her to blow out a candle seemed a greater challenge. She was very social and loved reaching out and touching people. She’d tell them they looked beautiful. She saw a pregnant lady once, ran her hands across her breasts, then moved her hands down to the pregnant belly and asked in sign language, Is this yours? I guess she didn’t have enough vocabulary to say something better. I apologized to the lady (she was not a stranger) and told her to answer yes to the question. My foster daughter then said her brother’s name (she didn’t speak clearly though), so she must have been remembering when her own mom was pregnant with her little brother. I wasn’t sure how much she could understand, but one day when I was interpreting in Sunday School class and we asked did anyone want to receive Jesus, she alone held up her hand. I said, Really? to confirm and explained a little more and she had the most serious look on her face. Yes, she wanted to receive Jesus. AND she wanted to be baptized. I had her only 4 years during each school year (she went home to her family in the summer – they lived in another city), but am eternally thankful, that I got to be a part of her coming to love Jesus.
