Letter to my Foster Carers

This letter from a real care leaver to her foster parents will touch your heart…

Our carers make a real difference to children’s lives. If you think you could you transform a life through foster care, get in touch with Fostering Solutions today.

With only 7 months and 12 days left until I’m free from care, I wanted to write you this letter to express my feelings of the past seven years.

Start your fostering journey today

To me, you aren’t foster carers. The term means nothing when you look at everything you’ve done for me. You gave me a home away from home when I needed it most. You took care of me when my own family couldn’t. You will both forever be in my heart. I will never be able to thank you enough or repay you for this.

Without you, I wouldn’t be the young woman I am today.

You showed me kindness and love. You gave the miserable, little girl a sense of humour. Throughout my GCSE’s you showed me support. You helped me to come to terms with the way things were in my life.

I’ve seen places I’d never seen before and been on holidays I’ll never forget. You’ve given me the most tasty food and taken me to and from school. So many little things that I can’t even write them all down.

Ultimately, if I could go back in time, I wouldn’t change a thing. Meeting you and all of your amazing family is the best outcome I could’ve hoped for. I will go through as a better person.

That’s all thanks to you.

Lots of Love and many thanks.
