Too Old to Foster?

Posted on 16/04/2018 by michelle

Years ago I watched a TV programme, it was about children in foster care. It was Tracy Beaker. It started me thinking but I had always worked in hospitality.


I was too old. Forget it. Kids need young people to look after them.


Then you start to hear words everywhere. Fostering. In care. Spare room. Still too old I thought. So i Googled fostering. Beta Care came up.I emailed them.


Ian emailed back. Ian came to see me. Then Ian came back with Anne.
Age is just a number he told me. Mmmm.


You need patience. You need to want to do this. Not a half job. 100% commitment.


They need care. They need patience. They need commitment form you. They need love.


Foster. It will change your life.
It did mine.

DH, Foster Carer with Beta since 2014
