It is important for foster parents that they do a self-assessment if the person or the couple is fit to take care of the orphaned child and just that, they should also assess if the couple or the person is physically, emotionally and financially fit. Most often, the foster parents are being asked “Are you sure you are ready to cope with emotional baggage or the trauma that the child may be carrying from his or her past?” “How are you going to handle the child ho have trust issues or may feel rejected?” “Do you have children of your own or maybe children whom you have adopted?” “How sure are you that your children are ready to welcome another child in the family?”
