As we talk about National Foster Care Month and the ways you can get involved, we want to share an upcoming training opportunity. Just like parents with biological children, foster and adoptive parents sometimes need a break to go to meetings or have a date night, but finding a babysitter is often difficult. To babysit a child in foster care, you must go through a babysitting course.
