Debra, who has been a foster carer for us for over three years, shared her favourite 20 minutes of last year in support of Foster Care Fortnight:
"My favourite 20 minutes of last year... being asked to and being present at the birth of my 'foster grandson'"
Being a foster carer is not easy. You're being asked to temporarily care for a child whilst they are unable to live with their birth family. It can be challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Foster Care Fortnight was conceived to celebrate the commitment and achievements of foster carers all over the UK.
You CAN change lives when you work with young people.
