fostering siblings

Going into foster care can be traumatic for a child and being separated from their siblings can make this worse. That is why Nexus Fostering will always try to find foster homes for siblings where they can stay together, as long as this is in each of their best interests.

 

 

Seeing our girl’s relationship go from strength to strength has to be the biggest benefit of keeping them together, they have each other, shared experiences and they get to grow up together united. They get to share achievements, memories and are simply able to just be sisters.

claire's story

I’ve been 18 years fostering, nearly 8 years with Nexus Fostering. We’ve fostered 116 children in total! The 3 siblings I have now are age 3 and identical twins of age 6. First, they came on respite for a couple of weekends, then out of the blue, I was called to the school and told to take them home permanently!

I feel it’s very important for their own self-esteem and to be kept as a family. My 3 were going to be split as we struggled to find someone to adopt children with special needs, especially a group of 3. The younger one was going to be adopted and the other two go to long term fostering. But it would have devastated them all – each one wondering why they weren’t chosen, why they were left behind, what had they done to be separated. It would have majorly affected them all.
