Follow one of our carers through the highs and the lows of the whole fostering journey…

Lucy works part time in carer recruitment for the fostering agency, Eastern Fostering Services. She also works directly with the some of the children fostered through the agency. The rest of her time she spends looking after her 2 boys and working for the ghost writing business she runs with her husband. This blog charts the family’s journey into fostering. It offers a unique view of the process, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes cry-into-your-sleeve sad, as Lucy continues her work with the agency, the carers and the children and as she prepares to roll them all into one new adventure.

When I asked my boys to describe what it feels like to wait for a child, Ben said, ‘tantalising.’ It is the expectation of something wonderful in that word that sums it up so perfectly.
