"You are our son, you are part of our family"

While our team was recently visiting Vieng Ping to deliver some training, we interviewed one of the foster parents who had taken in a child from the orphanage…

“I used to work in a school for seven years. When I left the school, I thought of applying to become a foster parent as I had seen other people in my village who were fostering. I went to the orphanage four times to inquire about being a foster parent and then finally one day I got a call to say that they had a little boy for us. I ran to tell my husband and just exploded with excitement that he was going to have a new son. Right from the first day, we felt like he was a part of our family and I told him over and over, You are our son, you are part of our family."

"This little boy has ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and he doesn’t always manage to pay attention and concentrate when he is at school. Having worked in a school before, I knew how important it was that I have a good relationship with his teacher and that I follow-up on his progress. At first, my foster son would say that he didn’t have any homework and after a few days I thought to myself that I’d better check with the teacher. I called the teacher and she said that she always gave the children homework, so I asked her if she would mind checking with my foster son every day to make sure that he had written down what the homework was. She was happy that I was taking that much interest in my son and we work together to make sure he gets the best from his education.”

Once again, thank you for your support and staying connected to our work.
