WHEN TO USE IT

 

The Worker uses the guide as a reference tool in the preparation of Life Books for children in resource (foster or adoptive care) family homes.

 

TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE LIFE BOOK

 

      The Worker has primary responsibility for compiling information and material to be included in the Life Book.

 

      Whenever a resource (foster or adoptive) parent is involved with the Worker  and child in the development of a Life Book, the Worker gives a copy of the guide to the resource (foster or adoptive) parent.

 

      Order photo albums for Life Books from the Central Office Stockroom.  Access the General Office Supply Request Form on the DCF website>Administrative Services>Facilities Management>Miscellaneous Office Supply Request Form and check off item 208.

 

      Purchase the film for pictures to be included in a Life Book through the Local Office petty cash fund, see CP&P-IX-F-1-600, Petty Cash Fund.
