Sleep & lying in foster care

2 Common issues with most children in foster care.

1. SLEEP 
And all the foster mamas said Amen!!!
Sleeping is very difficult for a lot of children in care the first few nights, weeks or months.
It's a new place, a new bed, new dark. 
It's will you still be here in the morning? Will you hurt me in the middle of the night?

2. Lying
This is very common. There are many reasons for this. One big one is lack of trust. Do you think just because you love Jesus and you're "nice" that they're going to trust you? Nope, ain't (yes I just used that) going to happen. Children will lie out of fear of what will happen if they tell the truth. Will they be hurt? Will their bio parents get in trouble?


There are many struggles you will run into. These two are very very very common and will need to be worked through.
