FosterCare UK’s Favourite #FosteringMoments

17th May, 2024

Here at FosterCare UK, we're fully embracing the theme of this year's Foster Care Fortnight: Fostering Moments. It's incredibly inspiring to explore the stories behind those small yet impactful fostering moments that have touched the lives of our team members.

We're excited to have the chance to share some of these heartwarming moments with you.

Fostering Moments

For quality standards manager, Mary, it’s about witnessing the pride foster carers have for the children they care for and their dedication first hand…

“Things that have stuck with me over the years as a fostering social worker; seeing carers have such pride in the achievements of the children they care for. Seeing carers who have unwavering commitment to the children they care for – no matter what!

Debbie, our chief operating officer, told us about a particularly stand out moment during her career…

“I supervised a family arrangement with two small children who didn’t make eye contact, did not want comforting, and them being able to attach to potential carers was a worry for all as this was the plan for their future.  One year in, I went to supervise the carer and as I was leaving one of the children put their arms up for me to pick them up.  I did and held them for a few seconds, and they asked to be put down.  I was such a significant moment, one I will never forget, they both went on to be matched to adopters together in the next year.”

Foster Care Fortnight

Foster Care Fortnight is The Fostering Network’s annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and show how foster care transforms live.
