No Trash Bags When Leaving My Home… Foster Care Bags
A trash bag. A trash bag? Yes, that’s what they came with… if anything. Being a foster mom, I’ve seen kids come with absolutely nothing. My daughter came with trash bags full of miscellaneous belongings that didn’t even fit her or pertain to her. Most clothing was stained or torn. She came to us dressed in little boy clothing. So, why trash bags? It’s the easiest and quickest way for social services to bring their belongings from point A to point B. Most items that make it from point A to point B are unusable, making it up to the foster parents to provide quality clothing for each child within hours of the children entering their home.
