Feeling Overwhelmed as a Foster Parent

· Support

"There is so much to know. I'm overwhelmed."⁠

I felt the same way when I was doing my initial training and when the first child moved in. You are not alone.⁠

It's important to remember: you do not have to MEMORIZE. You just need to be organized and be able to find and reference the information later.⁠

Recognize what works best for you and the way your brain works. For me, I like digital organization through bookmarks, saves, email, calendar reminders, and Google drive. This way I can quickly search and find the information I need.⁠

Other people like tangible, printed material. In this case, I recommend investing in a good printer, an ink subscription service, and 4-inch binders! ⁠

How do you stay organized? ⁠
