A Foster Carer Tells Their Story

I found the assessment very thorough but my assessing social worker told me it would be! I found that a lot of questions were asked and at the time I did not know why. Once I read my report it all made sense. Now being a foster carer, I understand why my social worker needed to know all the information she asked about. I have a foster child with me and the placement is going really well for both of us. My social worker knows me so well, she knows exactly the support that I need. The support that I have received since my foster child arrived has been amazing. I never feel like I am on my own. Having gone through the process I would gladly do it all over again as seeing my foster child thrive and grow into the person that he wants to be is so rewarding
