Fostering, because Not every child enjoys the warmth and protection of a family

SengkangBabies is a parenting blog and we are very proud of our family. Through our blog and photos, it is not difficult to tell that we have a tight-knitted family.

However, we always highlight to our kids that not every child is fortunate enough to enjoy family warmth. Some kids might have abusive parents, or their guardians might be sick, or lack the financial capability to care for them.

MSF (Ministry of Social and Family Development) has a Fostering Scheme to help these unfortunate kids. More information is available at this link.

MSF’s video showcase a few foster families’ experiences. We can witness how these fantastic families treat their foster kids like their own children, and provides them with unconditional Family Love.

In summary, the criteria to be foster parents are :

– must be residents of Singapore;
– preferably married;
– at least 25 years old; and
– must be medically fit to care for children

* Training and a monthly allowance will be available to help potential foster families.

In case you are interested to find out more, there is a Fostering roadshow from 19-21Apr.

We can definitely do more to help the less fortunate. Do help MSF to share their fostering programme with more big-hearted friends and families :
