If you are a regular follower of our blog, you will have noticed we have not posted much lately and for that we apologise but lately there have simply not been enough hours in the day!
As you will see from the post before this one we have been busy spreading the word about fostering at events such as the Dragon Boat Championships where prospective carers also get the chance to talk about what fostering is really like with some of our carers.
We know “Schools Out” shortly and many parents will be facing the prospect of their not so little ones flying the nest, going off to uni or college or entering the world of work. For many it is a time of reflection on a job well done and how they will fill the void created by being an “empty nester” and how they might usefully employ all those skills that they have built up over the last 18 years or so.
If you know people in that situation, particularly in Swansea and the surrounding area, why not gently suggest they think about fostering and encourage them to find out more at one of our events. We would be eternally grateful and so would a lot of vulnerable Welsh children currently in need of a loving and stable family environment.
Over the next few weeks we have a busy schedule of events and we would love to see you at one of them or someone you think would make a great foster parent.
