thank you for the information. Would love to know how to go about sending out foster parent reports prior to court to all parties including the judge so everyone has time to review prior to court hearing

The only thing I wish was included in this is how we can send in a report prior to court so that all parties have plenty of time to look over it prior to the hearing. Otherwise, wonderful information!

Really good information for foster parents!

Very good information.

This was very informational concerning how I can share a report as a foster parent and exactly what is needed to make it a beneficial report to best serve the children in our home.

For a 1 hour course, this was a fantastic way to learn a lot about advocating for a child's best interests in court. This is a good way to make sure that you're heard but not out of line in how you say things. It's also helpful to hear an experienced judge express respect for the foster parent experience.
