Aminah and Tauseef, both foster carers with NFA Midlands, have been shortlisted for the Foster Carer Award, which acknowledges dedicated carers who have demonstrated that in the most challenging circumstances, they have persevered to make a real difference to the child in their care, putting them at the heart of all that they do.
This particular submission was made by Nicola, Team Manager at NFA Midlands, for both Aminah and Tauseef’s commitment to a baby boy in their care who was admitted to hospital and was in a critical condition for many weeks, sadly having to be put into an induced coma.
With the exceptional support of Kelly, their Supervising Social Worker, both Aminah and Tauseef did not leave his bed side, illustrating their depth of compassion and kindness, whilst also caring for their two birth children and a foster child at the same time.
The baby boy was discharged from the hospital and will need ongoing treatment but he is thriving and happy.
They are truly incredible and inspirational for all they have done for him and couldn’t be more deserving of this award.
The hospital medical staff also made many commendable comments about the commitment and care from his foster carers and Kelly.
Huge well done and good luck!
