    • you might also bear in mind, they may come with next to no clothes. I have seen foster families not allow them to take the extra's with them.

      Goodwill will have furniture. You need to decide is there is room sharing etc. and then you can go from there. There are some great futon-ish bunk beds. I would also let them have a hand in deciding a color or theme for the room. Some family games is good so that you can get to know each other while you play. Baksetball hoop would be a great place to start as well.

      you can do this!! All adventures are scary, at first!

        • Can you ask for a list of their preferences?:
          food likes
          colors
          clothes size & things needed/wanted
          books to read
          games
          favorite teams/players- to decorate room
          favorite music
          movies, etc.

          And, most parents ( the good, caring, loving, realistic ones) ask the questions-- What were we thinking? What have we gotten ourselves into? Can we do this?

                  • Let shopping for their supplies be a bonding activity. These kids may not have gotten to choose to their preferences very often and this will give you all another bonding/ learning experience (boxers vs. briefs etc.) You can plan and prepare but never be ready. Just take it as it goes and try to avoid the " happy expectations" that always lead to disappointment. The process of putting it all together together ( the way families normally do) is where the magic happens. It takes a long time to learn to trust someone enough to be yourself after having been through so much in their young lives.

                    • DH is in a mood today. Sigh. He does not handle change -- even change he wants (like the boys) -- very well. Perhaps I should leave for Amarillo early!!

                      • Rms,
                        Something to add to your list if it hasn't been mentioned yet, lots of meat!!!!
                        Most teenage boys can eat a lot!!!!!
                        Maybe some GF wraps and gf bread so it's somewhat familiar.
                        Enjoy!!!

                        • So sorry about the mood, guess being out of town this week will actually be a good thing. How do the hubs and your mom handle these sorts of things when you are away?
