I’ve been thinking of all the things I wanted to thank you for and thought I’d write it down so you can read them when have a minute.
Tara, thank you for everything you have taught me during the past few years. I have learnt so much from you. As my first foster child, I didn’t know what to expect and if I’m honest I was a little daunted by the thought of the experience, you know, with me being on my own and all. Would I be able to give you everything you need?
Over the time I spent as your foster carer, you have taught me the true meaning of unconditional love. You had a bad start but that didn’t stop me from wanting to make your future better. We’ve had our ups and downs, and sometimes it’s been tough. I learnt to be patient, and so did you. When things were difficult or frustrating, we would always figure it out together. I’ll never forget the memories we made or the trust you showed to me during those first few weeks of meeting each other. It’s because of you I now know I can cope with more than I ever thought I could, for that I truly am grateful.
Thank you for teaching me to believe in my own abilities and for inspiring me to continue my foster caring journey and share all you’ve taught me with other children who need support too.
