Kids say the darndest things … and that includes foster children placed in Foster In Texas (FIT) homes. Touching base with the kids and their foster parents on a regular basis is an important way to reach out to them to see how they’re doing, whether they feel safe and supported, and glean a little insight into what’s on their minds.
Demereal Owens, LSS VP of Compliance, designed a special survey for FIT foster children complete with smiley/sad faces and translations into Spanish. Some of the surveys come back filled out in crayon, some are smudged and crumpled, and many really tug at the heartstrings.
Following are some of the children’s responses, in their own handwriting, that just might make your day, bring a smile to your face, or cause you to laugh out loud.
