Being a foster parent is so much more than loving a child in your home. It’s also showing kindness to a family when they need it most.
It’s giving a child a safe place to land during a hard, scary time when they’re away from home. And it’s showing compassion to a parent who is likely overwhelmed, scared, and without a lot of support.

It’s helping a child stay connected to the only home they’ve ever known, in whatever way it’s safe to do so, and cheering on a family that’s living out a comeback story.

At Bethany, our heart beats for family. We want to see families strong, supported, and together. But we know there are times when families face challenges—and children need care.

That’s why we’re seeking foster parents who believe in families too.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Parents can access the Michigan Foster Care Portal (MFCP), which is a tool that helps expedite licensure. The portal can track progress and list the next steps a foster parent needs to take. The MFCP also contains FAQs and helpful guides for parents.

In addition to online tools, foster families also receive some financial support. How much they receive depends on the child's age and needs. Parents may also be entitled to additional reimbursement that covers care costs.

Plus, foster families can access many local and state-wide support organizations and advocacy groups. These groups provide resources, answer questions, and are happy to help form connections between foster parents.

Your foster care agency is always there if you have questions or concerns. Their goal is to ensure the child's well-being and assist parents through the fostering process and beyond.

Another path you might want to consider is co-parenting with the birth parents. The end goal in most foster cases is to reunite a child with their parents or primary caregiver. You'll work with the birth parents anyway to set up visitations, and co-parenting can make your job easier.

Working further with the birth parents can also make the entire fostering process less stressful for a child. They won't feel as if they have to "choose" between homes and families.

They lied to us. When applying for fostering we worked with a Licensing recruiter, Rachel, who during the process everything seemed like it was going well. But when it came down to the decision for approving for a foster care license she had lied to us about most of their reasoning over the phone vs what was on the document summited to the state. One thing she said was not an indicator of their decision says differently in the documentation.

Don't adopt through this company, they're anything but Christian. I'm an adoptee whose adoptive parents went through this company. Years later after finally finding my birth parents we learned all the lies this company told us. My birth father wanted to keep me but this agency made him sign paperwork to relinquish his rights to me without him even knowing what the paperwork was even for. He was also never told he had 28 days to withdraw his consent LEGALLY IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN. We were then told he "didn't want any identifying information" given to us which was a complete lie. For 22 years I had a loving family wondering about me and unable to contact me. All they want is adopters money.

One entire year since this photograph we took together, my daughter and me. The Bethany Services are meant to be professionals in these cases and these weeks to come while they try to convince the courts to terminate my parental rights, they will be tested and the truths to be brought to light. I miss my little one and all this BCS of Madison hgts has done for us was tear us all apart. 13 so-called case managers and not one who cares enough to see the best interests of this special 5 yr old girl who has a family who loves her

TNFC helps young people that were in Foster Care get off the streets. They help with basic needs and people to have better lives.

I requested information on adoption, but I think we were declined because my husband isn't Christian. Although that's an assumption because they never return a phone call or respond to me.
