hello, in my blog this month I talk about the process of becoming a foster carer, how I found the experience and how I was treated during the assessment. Fostering is very rewarding and it’s something you could be doing in 2017. If there are any subjects you would like me to talk about in the future please state in the comments.
My Vlog this month is about Christmas and how a child who had never viewed the festive Season as a positive thing had not only enjoyed the day but taken the brave step to stand up during dinner and make a toast. He showed me how important it is to be part of a family at this time of year and how much our simple traditions can impact on someone’s self-worth, something I had always taken for granted as I have never known any different. Being part of a fostering family has taught me many things, but that Christmas I realised how lucky I had always been and have been thankful for it ever since.
Hi I’m Demi, and fostering has given me experiences that I would not have had if we hadn’t decided to become a fostering family. I know first hand that birth children can benefit from the process too, and sometimes just as much as the children in the care system do.
I’m always ready to share my views and if anyone would like a birth child’s perspective on any subject relating to fostering please let me know in the comments and I will try to cover the subject in future vlogs for Capstone!
