Adoption and fostering can be incredibly rewarding – but there are many challenges too. The demands of caring for children who have suffered trauma and loss can be overwhelming at times.
It can feel like one step forward and two steps back, as we try to manage their behaviour and repair some of the damage that may have been caused. Kinship carers can feel particularly isolated, as they struggle in the middle of difficult family situations.
Home for Good is a Christian charity and they seek to be a catalyst for peer support through their network of champions, churches, local movements, and online hubs. They also offer support through an enquiry line, online resources, and regular events. Find out more at www.homeforgood.org.uk or phone 0300 001 0995.
