Dear donosr,

The Instituto Fazendo História has just hosted  the  39th child by its Foster Family Service , providing family and community life for babies and young children who are temporarily separated from their families of origin. It is a transitional period that involves a lot of care, protection, affection and investment: for both children and their families. With skilled technical work and well-trained foster  families, we can transform and resignify many stories of disruption and violation of rights.

Following is the testimony of a foster family, who went through their third host:

“The child plays, grows and develops quietly while the tree fulfills its protective role. We, the host  families of the Making History Institute, are like the leaves of the tree ... Together we protect these little angels and leave them free and strengthened to go their own way. ”(Marco - foster family)

 

Thank you!

Dear donor,

Being a foster family is affection, support, it is a community experience of care. Much more than taking care of one child, it is a political act. Families taking care of each other, helping each other when they most need it!

Our Foster Care service provides home for children under 6 years old, in São Paulo - Brazil. Since 2016 we have fostered 36 children and have currently 14 active foster families. 

In Brazil, most children in alternative care still goes to institutions, unfortunately Brazilians are not used to the foster family service. And over these years, it has been our goal to disseminate this form of care, as we know that every child needs a loving home and stability.

 

Your help makes it possible to create new stories for Brazilian children!

 Obrigado (Thank you) 

Dear donors,

Our Foster Care service provides homes for children under 6 years old, in São Paulo - Brazil. These children had to be temporarily removed from their families by court order. During this period of separation, children receive care and protection from qualified foster families, that are systematically monitored to perform this function. Meanwhile, we work closely with the biological families so children can return to their homes safely and in the shortest time possible.  If this is not possible, other permanency options may be explored such, as adoption.  
We would like to share a new testimonial with you from a foster family who is fostering their 4th baby!

“We are a Foster Family! We welcome babies separated from their mothers so they can have a family experience while their legal situation is been solved. We give love, affection, attention, milk, diapers, baths, baby food ... We just give?!? We receive! We receive pure love! Like the mind, here is the soul that expands, the gaze that opens to another human being, that opens to so many different stories, without room for judgment, with much emotion. Learning, empathy, laughter, tears, arrivals and departures…And the heart, expands.” (Lumena & Ronaldo)


Thank you for your help creating new stories for Brazilian children!

We would like to share a new testimonial with you from a foster family who fostered a 3 year old girl for 6 months.

 

"Allowing and creating safe ways for children to express their feelings makes them stronger and more confident. We learned that presenting their story in a careful way and respecting their time made perfect sense and we saw that it was giving rise to the construction of new chapters. Knowing that our role as a Foster Family was fundamental in this transition, brings us great joy and satisfaction and shows that we are on the right way. Receiving is much more than caring much more than loving much more than holding ... It is turning! "Adriana and Marco, foster family

 

Thank you for helping creating new stories for Brazilian children!

Dear donors,

We would like to share a new testimonial with you. 

As you know, Foster Family is a kind of foster care service that allows children who are separated from their families by court order to return to their homes safely and in the shortest possible time.It is characterized only as a transitional period. Caring for and investing in the families we serve at the service can promote the breaking of cycles marked by lack of care.

So tells us Camila, Miguel's paternal aunt who had the experience of find her nephew in this situation:

"I and my brother have the same family history: childhood suffering, absence of parents, we live in shelter until we reach the age of majority." Each one of us followed different paths and after a few years I discovered the existence of a nephew. She was living with a foster family, but she needed a home, she needed her home, her family. I decided to change my life and my family history: I brought my nephew home, I am very happy with this decision and every day that passes our ties increase Yes, it's an infinite journey: work, home, school, among others, but with it I feel motivated to be better every day. "

(Camila - paternal aunt)

Thank you for being part of this construction with us.
