MalatyaThe Yasabe couple, who have 2 children, lived a happy life 13 years ago as a foster family without being separated from their own children in the dormitory.
As a result of their decision, the Malatyali Yababe couple applied to the Malatya Provincial Directorate of the Ministry of Family and Social Services exactly 13 years ago and decided to become the foster family of their 6-year-old daughter Y.Ö. The Yasab family, who have two daughters, are Y.Ö. Who has not separated, whom they have been protecting from their own children for 13 years. Their own daughter and Y.Ö. Currently living in the same university, in the same dormitory and in the same room. Expressing emotion at seeing the orphans, Yasab called on the couple to become foster families.
He has a mental structure and he and his wife often visit children under protection and care after marriage, says father Yıldirim Yaşabay, “We thought of being a foster family in two stages. I saw street children ৷ “We were going to take care of the children We said we would be happy to hold the hand of at least one child, and we decided to be a foster family, “he said.
Noting that there has been a positive response to the environment after having a foster family, Yasabe said, “There were some people who communicated very positively at first and hoped we could do something better.” We saw that he came back to the idea that we could do it. It made us very happy, “he said.
“I think we’ve become a real family.”
Mention that they are Y.Ö. Who did not separate, whose foster family they adopted, from their own children, Yasab says:
“We took our daughter when she was 6 years old. My daughter is now 19 and she is studying at a university in Cyprus. They have not broken up with my other daughter there either. Our daughter had no problem. My daughter came to us very sincerely, we came to our daughter in the same way. In a very short time we became a complete family. It’s been 13 years we have been a foster family. I never thought my daughter was mine. Not a child at birth. I think of my daughter as a birth mother and mother to us. “I don’t think she thought she was not my father. So we had a complete family unity. They are the same age as my eldest daughter and I always say, I have never seen my own siblings get together so much. I think we have become one. The real family. “
Revealing the process of becoming a foster family, mother Mehtap Yasbe said that she often thought of going to kindergartens for adoption and said, “I was wondering how I would handle it if I was a mother of children there. Married, my wife brought this up. “Let’s support a child. I had the same request.” Later we decided and applied with my wife, “he said.
“Our goal was not to separate the child from his family, but to raise the child for the future. Living with the family is a special feeling. We also tried to be a home for him. I want to,” she said. “Mothers and fathers who want to support a child want to be a foster family without worrying. It is very important for parents to make a joint decision,” he said.
Gallup Sokman, provincial director of Maltese Family Social Services, recalled that June 30 was declared Foster Family Day by a decree issued by President Erdogan last year and said, “We are also visiting foster families starting today. We are discussing activities with them. We will. “
The number of foster families in Malatya has increased, but this number is still insufficient, Sokman said, adding that in Malatya, 41 of our foster families carried 46 children with them. This number is not enough for Malatya. Son, our President’s wife Emin Erdogan achieved a great momentum in 2012 by promoting the foster family through the ‘Volunteer Ambassador’ project initiated by Turkey.
“We don’t want our foster children to lose touch with their own families.”
Congratulating the Yababe family, who have been a foster family for 13 years, Director Sokman said, “Despite our elite family having 2 children living in the Maltese elite, they put another plate on their table and took it with them. The third child with them, and them and their There was no discrimination between our own children. That is what we do. We do not disconnect our children from their foster families, we make sure that they are reunited with their families. I invite you. ” He said. – Malatya
