Making & Keeping Connections

Children in Foster Care need to keep connections with family, friends, kin, etc. Even if you are unable to provide placement for the child, there are ways to stay connected.

 Here are just a few great ideas…..


  • Mail a card
  • Write a letter
  • Send family pictures
  • Write or find and send a funny story
  • Send a book
  • Write or find and send a poem
  • Make and send a craft
  • Make a phone call
  • Send a care package
  • Send an email
  • Invite to a family gathering
  • Send a family recipe
  • Shopping
  • Trip to McDonalds
  • Attend a school event
  • Attend a sports or dance event

Remember that your contact should be positive and uplifting to the child. Talk to the Social Worker about ways you can stay connected.
