Hi, my name is N (well, obviously it’s not, but anonymity is wise sometimes…) and you’ve found you way across to my blog.
I’m a 28 year old single female social work student (a career change) who feels that God has called me to open my arms and my heart (and my house…) to a foster child or children. I’m a passionate follower of God, a believer in Jesus Christ, an aunty, a sister, a friend. I’m fiercely independent, a bit stubborn, sometimes obstinate, occasionally obsessive. I love to be read, craft, spend time with my dog, muddle along on my guitar and be useful to others, all things that
I suspect will be are rare occurrences once this journey truly begins when you are busy loving kids!
There is not a lot of information out there on the day to day life of being a foster carer in an Australian context (although there are some great blogs based in other countries, particularly America). So I’ve decided to write this blog about my journey
, starting right now, at the very very beginning. The aim is to demystify foster care and to encourage others to consider starting their own foster journey.
So far I have welcomed, loved and said goodbye to two beautiful brothers. Champ (3) and Buddy (2). I’m currently navigating post restoration contact and
learning how to loving their whole family, including Big Sis (7) who is now living with me until she too can return to Nan.
