5 Foster Kids Getting Their Very First Birthday Celebrations With Their New Families!

Foster kids are excited to celebrate their birthdays.

Many of us take our birthdays for granted, but for many kids in the foster system, this celebration isn’t a guarantee. In fact, there are plenty of foster parents who actually end up being the first to give cake and presents to the child in their care. Every child deserves to know they’re special and loved, even if it’s a little later in the game. Seeing the smile on a kid’s face when they blow out their candles for the first time is heartwarming!


It might seem like a small thing, but being celebrated on their birthday can really make a big difference in a child’s life! We’ve rounded up some of the most beautiful foster family birthday parties on the internet that demonstrate what good parenting looks like. These kids’ reactions are so sweet!

We love to see families who go out of their way to make sure the kids in their care feel loved. Of course, there’s a lot more that goes into being a foster parent than throwing the best birthday party ever. However, it’s a sweet start!
