52, 050 Children are in foster care...........
Bam. That is some number isn't it. I don't know about you but when I read that I'm kind of shocked. I never knew the number was so high. I'm also amazed at the job that foster parents/carers do. Myself & my husband discussed the possibility of fostering a child perhaps over Christmas 2016, I think it would be such an amazing and admirable thing to do. I would love to be able to offer the opportunity of a family Christmas to children that perhaps aren't as fortunate as others.
To be able to offer a home environment and some stability to children that haven't, at this point of time got would be an extremely rewarding thing to do. I love the thought os being able to share the family structure and love that we have and welcome some others into our household. Have read of the infographic below........ 32% of fostered children are under 5, such a high figure. Alfie is 3 1/2, I can't imagine how difficult it must be for a child of his age to overcome and adapt to new surroundings, new families and so many new experiences' at such a young age. That being said being a foster family is such an incredible thing to do and we would certainly like to consider doing it at some point in the future.
Please do have a read of the information below featured on this poster, I think when you see statistics in black and white it can really make you read on and take the facts in.
