“Your most important job is to keep everyone safe. At the end of the placement, when everyone is happier and more positive than when they first arrived, it makes those challenges worth it.
I’ve fostered a number a babies over the years. In particular, one baby was withdrawing from drugs and alcohol, as well as having a disability. You can imagine the joy I felt when he left us, nearly walking – after being told he might never be able to.
I’ve had a great time fostering and if you have the patience and love to give, then go for it.”
We also have more information about fostering in the borough of Lambeth on our website.
