Co Down couple named NI Foster Carers of the Year

The players had shirts with titles including "social worker", "foster carer" and "GP" on them, to highlight the teamwork involved in helping foster children achieve their full potential. "We are looking for loving, committed adults willing to open their hearts and homes to children who need a safe and supportive environment during a hard time in their lives".

If a child can not live with a parent, social service agencies look for family members or other adults the child knows, such as a teacher or neighbor, to care for the child. That's always the plan generally for foster kids.

"It is heart-breaking when you have to say goodbye to them but seeing the changes in them after a relatively short time with us is remarkable".

The Florida Department of Children and Families estimates there are more than 12,000 kids in licensed foster care. "You have to be able to wrap your arms around them and give them that safety... let them find their feet".

"Of course I was nervous at first, who wouldn't be at the thought of letting a child you don't know into your home".

"It has given them a sense of how life really is out there for |people; how many children are not cared for in the way they had been cared for".

Protective custody means they have been placed with a relative, in foster care, a group home or some other arrangement.

People in Rutland are being asked if they could provide a safe, caring environment for children and young people who are unable to live with their own families.

"We have also adopted three of our foster children who they call their sisters and brother, they don't think twice about it; they are their siblings".

"We have some wonderful foster carers in Essex and I am pleased so many of them are helping us to encourage more families to consider fostering".

There are few limitations on who can become a foster parent. Colorado does not discriminate based on gender identity, orientation or expression.
