We believe in building good relationships, positive reinforcement, patience, learning positive behaviors, and appropriate discipline such as teaching expectations, and having clear and consistent rules. 

We have completed and received a certificate in PRIDE training. PRIDE stands for Parent Resource and Information, Development and Education. PRIDE Foster/Adoption training is a program for prospective foster and adoptive parents that teaches us to effectively:

  • Protect and nurture children,

  • Meet children's developmental needs and address developmental delays,

  • Support children's relationships, and,

  • Connect children to safe, nurturing relationships intended to last a lifetime. 

Furthermore, we completed 18 hours of domestic adoption training through Adoption Education LLC. This program meets competency requirements for adoption.
