Rebecca from Fosterhood

Parenting with,around and beyond the NYC foster care system.


Rebecca is a foster parent to "Sandy" and mom to (almost) adopted daughter, Clementine. She never intended to care for two newborns in her home at the same time, but crazier things have happened. During the day, Rebecca works as a facility psychologist at a day program for adults with developmental disabilities. She's also a Visiting Assistant Professor at an art college and she blogs about her life as a New York City foster parent at www.fosterhood.tumblr.com.

Fun Facts

  • One thing I wish I knew before having kids:

    Parenting is a young person's sport!

  • Biggest parenting fail:

    Letting my preschoolers watch April the Giraffe give birth.

  • My parenting motto:

    If it's not a bodily fluid, it can be cleaned up later.
