Birthday lunches/dinners for foster children and parents
One of the hardest things for these parents is missing birthdays and holidays with their children. We do birthday lunches (could be dinner or breakfast too) for the birth parents, birthday child and siblings ( an approved volunteer attends ) at a restaurant that we choose together. We usually give them some options and let them pick. They bring the birthday dessert which brings them much joy and we pick up the tab. If needed we transport the birth parents and children.
