As National Foster Care Month draws to a close, the KidsPeace Foster Care office in Doylestown, PA, reported on the activities of its foster parent support group. This enthusiastic group of foster parents is about to publish the second quarterly issue of the Foster Parent Newsletter. The first issue was excellent and a large success. It was edited by one of the foster mothers who compiled numerous articles from other parents. The second issue is being eagerly awaited by all.
On May 25, the support group also kicked off a series of summer picnics that they are organizing. The first picnic was held at Peace Valley Park in Chalfont, PA. More than 50 people attended, including foster parents, their extended family members, kids and the foster care staff. There were huge amounts of great food, and the kids enjoyed playing all kinds of games and also liked hanging out by the lake. There will be a series of picnics throughout the summer at different parks throughout Bucks County, culminating in a day at Menlo Park's water park for National Kids' Day on August 2.
