Foster parents are asking for help with a specialty formula for a three month old baby who is having trouble eating and WIC does not cover that specialty formula in order to help continue baby’s weight gain. So far, after switching to this formula, the baby has consistently gained weight at an appropriate rate, however the problem is that it is tough to find and very expensive. Foster parents have drove around to Oklahoma City, Arkansas, and Locust Grove to secure some since this baby came into care. The baby is placed with adopted sibling and has had issues from birth, but the foster parents have done a great job looking after this baby and making sure the baby’s developmental needs are met. The specialty formula is “Enfamil AR (added rice).” FM asked for reimbursement of $250 and/or cans of formula. Anything would help this foster family care for this baby. Worker put 12 cans, however foster parents will take any help since this baby will be taking this formula for a while.

The mother entered into a juvenile deprived case with her current child and has done exceptionally well, turning her life around and her case is about to close. There was domestic violence and the mother filed for and received a protective order from the father so there is not any contact with him at this time. The mother found out she is expecting and it is a high risk pregnancy. The mother is in need of baby items including a car seat and infant clothing, diapers, blankets and any other items associated with an infant because she is unable to work at this time. The mother's DHS case will be closing in a week so she will not have any of the services when the baby is due in September. If these needs are met, it would take the stress off the mother and she can focus on taking care of her current child and prepare for the new one. Mother is expecting a girl but does not care for pink, prefers purple and yellow for a girl.
A little girl in foster care is turning 9 this month. The girl is being fostered by her grandmother. The family does not have extra money to buy the little girl a birthday gift. The little girl is asking for a manicure and pedicure at a salon for her birthday.

This request is for a family that started fostering in 2021. Right away, they excepted a sibling set of three kids because the family did not want the children to be separated. They knew there were going to be many sacrifices because there wasn’t enough room for each child to have their own room including their own child. However, they were determined to make it work because they wanted these children to stay together in order for them to overcome their traumatic experiences. It has been a rough couple of years with limited space, but recently an opportunity came up and they were able to find a bigger home that would provide each child with their own bedroom. This is something that the foster children have never experienced and now will have an opportunity to know what that is like, be a little more “normal”. They are now in need of 3 dressers for the children.
Foster parents are asking for help with clothes for a 2 year old who came into care with no belongings. Child is a girl who wears size 3T in clothes and 7/8 in shoes. The child was homeless living in the car with natural mother and her boyfriend and the child did not have anything, but the clothes on her. Foster parents will take any use or new items for this child, as anything would help make this placement long term. (Clothes: shorts $5, tops $5, dresses $15, sandals $20).

Parents need your help paying the summer camp fee of $675 in order to provide a positive peer opportunity for their 14 year old son with other disabled children. Their son is non-verbal, autistic and an epileptic. One of the parents’ plans to attend this camp with their son. This young boy needs and deserves lots of positive interaction with peers in a supervised and safe atmosphere so he can experience new things available at this camp. By covering even a portion of the camp fee, you will be making a huge difference in this family’s life. This boy will be able to zip line through the woods, jump off a diving board amidst a cheering crowd and create a lifelong relationship with a camp friend among many other camp activities.
The Family and Child Welfare thank you for considering assisting with this fee. Again, any donation amount will go to pay for this young boy’s camp fee.
