About Christy at A Fostered Life

I’ve been creating resources for new and prospective foster parents since 2014, when I started a YouTube channel to share some of the things I was learning as a new foster parent. (Can I just pause here and say, the learning curve was huge! I had so much to learn, and if I’m honest, I felt pretty lost that first year as a foster parent. Like many, I went into it with some false preconceptions and assumptions, and I had no idea how much being a foster parent would challenge and change me in every area of my life.)

Over the years, A Fostered Life has grown to include an active blog and Facebook page, and in early 2019, I started a support community for foster parents called The Flourishing Foster Parent. While that community is no longer active, the resources we created together can be accessed via my web site. All of these things are available at

I make most of my resources available at no cost. But the amount of time and money it takes to create these resources really add up. If you benefit from A Fostered Life, I'd love it if you would become a Patron!

If you are a foster parent, please consider pledging $5 per month to support my work and help me grow this body of resources to support, equip, and encourage foster parents. 

If you are from an agency that trains or recruits foster parents, and you use my materials as part of your curriculum, please consider supporting me with a $10 per month pledge.

If you are neither, but you simply want to support my work, there's a tier for you too! Pay what you want! You'll still get access to all of my bonus content for patrons!
