This is my first experience of being a foster carer and I wouldn't change a thing. I have the privilege of looking after 2 little boys who are full of energy.

I remember a particularly challenging day where I was questioning my choices to my supervising social worker and she listened without judgement and gave great advice and support, not to mention the beautiful bunch of flowers and card a few days later. Needless to say I've never looked back! Fostering is definitely the right choice for me!
