Fostering

Over the years I have become a big advocate for fostering. I myself have worked with many children in care and those raising them.

There can be a huge amount of different reasons why a child ends up in care.

Holding a strong judgement on why children are in care, doesn't normally help the child.

These children struggle with identity and attachment.

Who am I if I am not with my family?

The healthy attachment process that happens when they are young is often interrupted or sometimes never happens, leaving these kids to become detached from themselves and the world they live in.

There are many ways to help kids in care without being a foster parent yourself.

In our journey, we have used friends and the community at large to help give children the opportunity to experience things they never have. You might have a farm or a unique lifestyle, you might have a collection of something, you might have a skill you could teach, you might be able to provide an aunty/uncle figure, a grandmother/grandfather figure, you might be good at sports, good at board games, there are many ways that you can help these children out without actually taking on the task of fostering them.

If you get the niggle in your heart when you hear about children who are fostered, think about what it is you could offer, often they just need time and someone to be interested in them.
