This is Iris, read what she has to say about being part of a fostering family.

Thank you Iris for all you do and the difference you make

“ I often get asked, "do you like fostering?" and I can honestly say I do. I am proud to help these young children and make their lives a little brighter.

My mum has been a foster carer for over 15 years so that's all I've ever known, although that full time she has not been a part of the Family Foster Care team. After joining we have both found a massive difference in the support and how much they value our work.

Today, I went on a son's and daughter's day out, which we do twice a year. This is to show thanks for all we do.

Although I do enjoy fostering, I find it hard with all the extra people visiting to speak to the children in our care.

Although it can be challenging, I welcome every child into my home and enjoy watching them grow. I'd like to think I have played a small part in their futures”
