On Friday, May 31 COBYS held a Meet & Greet event for prospective foster and adoptive families. They were able to learn about the short-term, long-term, and lifetime ways foster/adoptive families serve children in foster care! The event was held at Keystone Church, 20 Harristown Road, Paradise, PA 17562.
COBYS foster/adoptive families have all been through the steps and process – thinking about, praying about, and learning about foster care and adoption. They decided the time was right for them to open up their heart and homes.
Families learned about the steps to become an approved resource family for children in foster care and discovered what it is like to create relationships with foster children and their birth families. They heard about the experiences of some of our resource families providing short-term, long-term, and lifetime care for children.
Kid friendly crafts and stories emphasize the love and security offered by parents and the importance of being safe. Games and a fantastic playground were available so kids had a chance to play while grownups conversed.
COBYS staff are passionate about the ministry of foster care and adoption! They are always available to discuss the requirements and process to become approved with COBYS as a foster/adoptive resource family as well as any specific questions you have.
