Foster Care Binder – Keeping it organized

(this post contains affiliate links)
The one thing that is certain about foster care, is there is a TON of paperwork.  Having an organized foster care binder will make your life so much easier.
There can be a lot of transition in your home as a foster parent.  Just when you are getting used to one child, they may leave and you have another placed in your home.
The social workers, doctors, visitation, and meetings are a lot to keep up with, so having a foster care binder when you can keep everything organized and easily available is so key!
I have been using this binder system for a while now, and it has really helped in my second year of fostering.  The first year without the foster care binder I was a mess.  I had papers everywhere and I couldn’t find what I needed when I needed it.
I searched online but couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for so decided to create my own, and I wanted to share it with you.

Print them out and add them to a binder with dividers.  A 1.5 inch binder is a great size.  I also like to have a variety of coloured pens for the various labeling and details that I add in. Post it notes are also great to stick in the front zipper folder, if you need to jot something down quickly then transfer those details to the binder.
