Kylie is married, works full-time, and has three children of her own. ‘When the time came, everyone was super supportive. And the agency that we work with, UnitingCare, were incredible… they made it really easy’.
Brad and Damien are a couple, who always wanted children of their own. ‘We’ve been foster carers for just over three years now. There’s so many amazing, unique situations, whether it’s long-term / short-term care, permanent care orders or even just respite care’.
Lesley is a single mum who has helped many children over the years. ‘I’ve got one primary foster child whose now 17 – he came to me when he was three. I consider him my son now. I’ve had a lot of other kids … for months, weeks, days, overnight. Some stay in your life for a long time and some don’t. But you can make a positive difference to all of them’.
