We are not perfect parents but then who is a perfect parent?? We are merely loving parents genuinely doing our best. I truly believe that’s all you need to be. Our journey into foster care is just beginning, I am sure there will be tough times and things that may break my heart, but it’s not about me, it’s about the thousands of children in foster care in Australia who just need somewhere safe to lay their head each night.
One thing I do know is that you cannot judge foster children’s real parents, to do that would be wrong. Who knows what set of circumstances has bought them to this point in their lives, it could just as easily be you or me going through a tough time.
