How to help foster mom losing her daughter of 2 years.
We are adopting my niece who lives out-of-state with the same fostermom since she was 2 months old (she’s almost 2 now). We have been the adoptive resource since the beginning and we have met the foster mom and she’s very supportive of the adoption but I can’t imagine how painful this will be for her.
What are some nice things that we can do for the foster mom during this transition? She has been a wonderful fostermom for my niece and I want to be sure to not say or do anything that will make this harder for her and in fact would like to do some thoughtful things to help her through this transition.
Any creative/nice ideas??
• Encouraging a hyphenated identity
• Adoption charities for year-end giving
• Embracing family and birth family relationships that don't come with exact names
• "The best gift we received when we adopted was…"
