FOSTER AND ADOPTIVE FAMILY SERVICES INC
September 20, 2013

I became involved in FAFS five and a half years ago when i found out my goddaughter and her brother were in DYFS custody in Passaic County. We became a license foster family and got custody of the two little ones and FAFS was there to help answer all our questions, even after we adopted the two little ones the have been there to help us with getting help with programs available to us for counseling for our little ones, our oldest is now 8 and though she still has alot of trauma issues we know that there are people out there to help us through. Other Foster parents who have adopted little ones who suffer the same things, sometimes i feel so stressed out for all the pain my two are still going through four years later, but i know with FAFS i have a support system to reach out to.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

To reach out to the adoptive parents of kinship kids more so they know about parties, and other kids local in the area that they could socialize with that may suffer the same emotional problems they do so they dont feel so alone
