Good News!


Several of our children have received positive office referrals and are doing well in school. One of our kids was in a video production at school
and it went very well. Her video was in the top 15 in Harford County.           

We have a few birthdays that we are celebrating. We hope that they had fun. One of our children had a recently had a Quinceanera (a coming-of-age party/birthday party). The Quinceanera was a
beautiful collaborative effort between the social workers, the biological family, and the foster family. Everyone went out of their way to make it special for her.

Another child is in the 60s club at school for knowing 60 sight words!

Two of our children were baptized last Sunday.

One child has gotten her driver’s license and has had no referrals, suspensions, etc. She is off probation and is doing very well.

We have had so much good news recently and we want to share it with everyone including our wonderful foster parents.

Compliance

We know that you work very hard and life gets very busy. It is important to maintain a balance and at the same time take care of your well-being. We appreciate all that you do for our children. We ask that you remain compliant each month; this helps us keep everything in order not only for our quarterly audits, but for our children.

If you need help with any of the documents, trainings, etc. please reach out to the TFC department so that we can assist you. We thank you again for your dedication.
