I often teach MAPP classes. MAPP is the training program required for prospective foster and adoptive parents in the state of Kansas, it's also used in other states. While teaching I have been asked many questions on how to go about preparing a room for upcoming children.
- "How do we prepare a room for new kids?"
- "What do they need?"
- "How do we plan for clothing needs?"
So, I bounced around some ideas with a good friend and veteran foster parent. We came up with a great list of items that hopefully answers the question, How to Set Up a Closet and Bedroom for an Older Adoptive or Foster Child
. I hope it helps in your preparations to foster or adopt an older child.
