Meet Amanda

Amanda is seven years old and in a foster home. 

She is at an age where parental bonds and security are crucial to healthy development. The first five years of a child’s development are integral to their health, well-being, and the trajectory of their lives and futures. Amanda needs to be able to grow up in a loving, caring environment where her emotional needs are all met. Unfortunately, her life lacked the stability and solidity that every child deserves in their home. Forced to move an average of 7 times in their duration in foster care, Amanda is one of the thousands of children who fall into this statistic. 

Family time is invaluable- it builds confidence, resilience, and identity, factors that weigh heavily in a child’s development. However, Amanda’s foster mom was struggling to maintain a personal connection with her because of the mountains of paperwork and logs that took up a lot of potential bonding time between them. When her foster mom switched to using FosterShare®, a revolutionary new app from Miracle Foundation, to complete important logs and check-ins, she was able to dedicate more time to Amanda. With the paperwork process streamlined on a centralized platform, she didn’t have to worry about keeping track of paperwork, reflecting that “FosterShare gives me more time to focus on the kids and less on the documents.” Now, able to become fully in the moment, they spend quality time trying new ice cream flavors (Amanda’s favorite treat) and spending quality time at the park. She notices that her foster mom is more present than ever, able to live in the moment rather than worrying about completing the paperwork on time. 

The app helps paint a complete picture of a child so that parents and caseworkers never miss a thing, from behavioral patterns to their favorite ice cream flavor. Now, when seven-year-old Amanda grows into an adult, she’ll think back to her childhood memories and smile, recalling the precious memories spent with her foster mom at ice cream parlors and playing on the swings at the playground together. FosterShare is a life-changing tool for parents and caseworkers, saving them time and stress – while having a profound impact on children. By prioritizing relationships and memories, these tools help create a nurturing and supportive environment for vulnerable children, laying the groundwork for a brighter future.
