I wouldn't be able to do it myself, but my mum has just been approved to be a foster carer, which is pretty cool.

One of my best friends has been a loving foster parent to a disabled child for more than 20 years. He and his partner also have another delightful child of their own. God bless them all for setting such a wonderful example to others.

Excellent cause and good luck with it. Was listening to the Radio yesterday about the difference in local authorities in the average time taken to place children with foster parents.

I've thought about doing this loads of times but am then always worried by the huge committment and responsibility of taking on a vulnerable young person. I also think I'd get really attached to them and would find it difficult when they eventually move on... am really torn on this one as I do think it's one of the best things anyone can do to help; both the children and also society as a whole..
