Dear friends, Thank you for being with us! Thank you for your trust and support of our work! We are convinced that every child should have a family, close people who understand, and warm memories of happy childhood. In order to achieve this goal, DTC Foster Family Project staff members continue running the School for Foster Parents and supporting the prospective foster parents to take a child in their family. We are happy to share our project news with youth. In March, a new cycle of the School for Foster Parents was launched. This is the 57th School conducted by the project staff. We are proud of the fact that our school is attended by people who care – those who want to foster a child, learn to better understand children and gift a happy future to them. This is the first time after the pandemic outburst that we are conducting the school in a face-to-face format, which is pleasure both for the trainers and trainees. A total of 15 people were enrolled in the training. Prior to the school, all the candidates were interviewed by the project staff members. Over one and a half months, the participants were developing new competences, discussing new topics, sharing their experience, and posing questions to the experts. This time, a request for training was received from Anna and Vladimir who did not take a final decision on fostering a child, and wanted to see if the school would help. The couple wanted to become happy parents and help the child find a family, but doubted if they could and had a lot of fears and myths on fostering that prevented them from moving on. The sessions, small group discussions, talk s with other participants and consultations provided by the staff helped them clarify their motives and reinforce their decision. Anna and Vladimir decided to foster a child under 3 years old. “We were discussing this important step with my husband for over a year, – shared Anna. – Despite we both wanted that, and agreed, we were worried and had to overcome many fears. Participation in the School helped us obtain answers to important questions. I came to an understanding that any problem could be resolved, and we would get through. We found a lot of important and useful information, received recommendations and support”. Now the psychologists are providing consultations to the participants to make up certificates on their eligibility for fostering. This is a mandatory document for obtaining permission for taking a child to the family. We are wishing good luck to all our graduates! We hope that a number of children will find their families soon. Thank you for supporting our project!
