Is there any foster mummy's out there??


Hi just trying to find any foster mummy out there in the uk..

Just in the very early days of looking into it and would love to know about all the good. Points of fostering and bad points..

I have got 6 children of my own from 2 years old to 16 years old..
Only one small room left spare to foster in..
But still feel I have the time and skills and love to give another child....


Any one out there who can help answer my busy head of question...

Little update...
Got sent a email from foster people,,
Saying roughly,thanks for you interest in fostering. We will give you a call in 6 months so my little boy can get used to sharing with his brothers,,then they will call me back and get things started...
But due to the ages of my children they would only be able to offer me a 0 to 2 years old to start with....

Couldn't sleep last night I' m soo excited to get things started..
Been looking on ebay for a new cot bed and new bedding...
I know it's a long road ahead until we get our foster baby/child but I can't wait...

Hope this 1st stage 6 months goes fast. ...

And hi to lolly1985 hope you are injoying being a family at last...
Will you still be fostering ??

That's brilliant news, really happy things are moving. I'm actually not a foster carer, although did go through some of the fostering home study a few years back in order to provide respite care in my home. I posted the link originally as it is a more active fostering board in the UK ( noticed when visiting for adoption pages) Hasit been any help? Our little girl was in foster care from leaving hospital at 6 days old and stayed with them until 10 months. They have given her the best start and she is thriving xxx

Little update we have to move the Room I plan to foster in is to small it has to be 6 ft by 6 ft at least..
We have to move and then wait 6 months before they can even start anything I was so excited to start soon..
The house we have seen that we like has 6 bedroom so lots of room for us and one spare room for foster child, I just hope that they say yes to us...
As we are planing on spending loads of money moving to a big house,in the hope that they will say yes you can foster....
