Empty Nesters to Foster Parents

Empty Nesters to Foster Parents Featured Image Picture

By Sabrina Carr


Becoming a parent involves experiencing the many stages of childhood, from first words and the first day of school to sports, piano lessons, prom, graduation, and potentially college. After investing so much time, energy, and dedication, parents often face a whirlwind of emotions when their children leave the “nest”. This parenting transition can be one of the most challenging phases of parenthood.

Being an empty nester does not have to be a negative experience. If you are in your empty nest phase and seeking a fulfilling adventure, there is a path for you. You can continue your parenting journey and use your valuable parenting experience to support and nurture children in foster care in Hampton Roads. With the skills you have developed and the space in your home, you are well-equipped to provide a stable, loving environment for a child in need.  

After raising their children, parents often still have a lot of love and guidance to give. As an empty nester, you bring a unique perspective and a wealth of experience to the table. Becoming a foster parent allows you to continue sharing your passion while significantly impacting a child’s life. Having successfully guided your children to independence, you understand the cycle of nurturing and letting go. With years of experience parenting, you have the tools needed to support a child in foster care. .

If you are an empty nester searching for your next fulfilling adventure, foster parenting can be your next step. You will make a difference in children’s lives by supporting them when they are in need. Through our foster parent support, we are here to help you every step of the way.   

Our team is here to help you as you embark on the rewarding journey of becoming a foster parent!
