A friend got a call today that she’s getting her first placement as a foster parent: a newborn baby boy. Her questions made me want to put together a list of suggestions to ask if you’re picking up a newborn. These are different than the questions you might ask for the placement of an older child.

I remember receiving what must have been a dozen phone calls over the course of a week… just waiting for a placement. We waited… and waited… and waited. I thought, “Surely, there is a child out there for us. During training classes, we heard nonstop about the great need for willing families.”

We are dealing with an opiod epidemin in 2019. I always knew drugs were a big reason that children, especially babies come into foster care. It was one of the biggest reasons I wanted to help children in care. Babies affected in the womb before they take their first breath they don't even have a chance. Or do they?With correct intervention, these babies leave the hospital and can go on to live normal healthy lives. Either abandoned by birth mothers and adopted or apprehended into foster care…
