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.
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..
