Christmas presents

Christmas and care – part 2

21 November 2017

“Our foster children tell us they never used to have Christmas. They never had a Christmas tree. They never had presents. It hurts me to think about even now.”

“I love Christmas and they get all excited, they love everything to do with Christmas. They are 13 and I still try and convince them of father Christmas! Though now they just call him ‘Brian’.”

“If they didn’t like Christmas I would have to do it differently. They might find it overwhelming, being away from family and with all the pressure of the season. It can trigger things off for them, depending on their experience.

I am lucky that they didn’t have any negative feelings about Christmas and they can enjoy it with our family.”
