If you are a foster parent have you wondered about the impact you are making?  Maybe you just have not been able to see the difference you made.  This article is the encouraging word you've been looking for! Megan Holmes wrote this article based on interviews she did with teens in foster care and as she said, "Although it may seem as if your foster or adopted youth is easily angered, agitated, and frustrated with you, know that they greatly appreciate you for your genuine concern. This is something some youth have not yet experienced while in care."
