“The mind of a child in foster care can be a dark and scary place. With their souls craving the love and trust of a parent and their young brains still developing, the situation they find themselves in – a situation not of their own choosing – is overwhelming.
Feelings of sadness creep into their thoughts and crowd out all others, tormenting them, until these kids are pleading for it all to stop. But it won’t stop. With all this internal dialogue going on, they start to wonder why they can’t relate to the other kids at their ‘school-of-the-month’.
Youth who have aged out of care sometimes share a bit about their past hardships on our Facebook page. Recently, two young women commented on the same post. My heart sank when I saw the glaring similarity between the two: one had been through 16 foster homes between 1994 and 2000, the other had been through over 23 homes by the age of 13 – so very young and already so much upheaval.
You can imagine the trauma such utter instability wreaks on a child’s state of mind. Kids with mental health conditions are seldom diagnosed, and even if they are, the constant moves mean they are last in line for already scarce resources.
But SOS Children’s Village BC does things differently. Shortly after arriving at our Village, kids find what they have been so desperately craving: a permanent, loving home and an amazing community of support.”
Foster children have been described as the most vulnerable and least visible kids in our society. Please hurry and help us provide them with healing and home, send your gift of support today!
