Foster Carer Stories

Dreams come true.

Stories are the way we pass on knowledge. As children, we learn about life, about love, about everything from stories. As an adult, we do too. Just not from colourful books.

Our carers have a variety of stories – no two the same. A carer’s story could be of how they were fostered and wanted to pay it back. A carer could have a story of an empty nest, and that desire to be a parent driving them to help those less fortunate.

Or the story could simply be of a carer who’d never thought about fostering till someone told them their story.

So, let’s let the carers tell their stories below.
