Mothers’ Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all those in ‘mother’ roles, and we at Home for Good know that such roles reach beyond biology and shared last names.
This and every Mothers’ Day, we want to celebrate, acknowledge and thank acknowledge the huge array of parenting and caring roles that impact the lives of children and young people and affirm all those who are making a difference, while also inviting communities to consider what their part could be in ensuring that every child is welcomed into a home and community who will care for and support them.
Mothering Sunday offers us the opportunity to share information about the Home for Good Foundations course. Foundations is an online course for anyone who wants to find out more about fostering, adoption or supported lodgings for teenagers. This might be because you’re interested in growing your family in this way, or because you’d love to gain a better understanding in order to support others. Wherever you find yourself on your journey, we believe that the Foundations course will equip you to better understand the experiences of children and young people, and enable you to make well-informed decisions.
We’re delighted to be able to offer two videos to share with church communities, perhaps before, during or after services on Sunday 19 March. In addition to this, Home for Good have, as always, compiled some ideas for your service, which we really hope will help to create a space where everyone feels welcome, however they feel on Mothering Sunday, and we hope it inspires your community to think about the parts that each of us can play to welcome, care for and encourage care-experienced children and young people in our communities.
Thank you for choosing to support Home for Good in this way. We’re excited at the thought that this March, many individuals and families from church communities right across the UK might be inspired to take their first step towards fostering, adoption or offering supported lodgings – and that ultimately, homes will be found for children and young people who are waiting.
