Spend the day with Sarah Faulkner, a long-time resource parent for infants in the ODHS Child Welfare foster care system. Debbie will share their experiences and the hard-won knowledge they have gained through their work. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear about the many challenges that resource parents face when caring for children between birth to age three. Some example topics will include preemies and low birth weight; genetic or developmental disorders; attachment; effects related to explore to drug, alcohol and smoking; medically fragile infants and risk factors; and self-care for resource parents.
