Fostering blog - my surprise favourite word

Published on: 2017-12-12 15:30:00

Welcome to the neighbourhood and my blog about fostering. I’ll be sharing what life is like being a foster carer, my experiences, past and present and revealing some of the laughter and tears. The blog will be varied and will include useful information and links, everyday experiences and some of the more unusual things we get up to. Confidentiality will be respected and names have been changed to protect everyone including children in our care, birth children and views of other foster carers. This blog is my own work and not necessarily the views of Nexus Fostering.
