  1. Hello there,
    I've just come across your blog as I am doing ongoing research about it, as it has always been something I've wanted to do. I say 'ongoing' because I am about to have our second child, so it would be a plan about 2-3 years in the future. Could you tell me how your work fits around your foster care? I would need to work part-time in addition to fostering but it is flexible and could be made to fit, however everything I read about it says that the agency would rather you committed full-time to the care role. Do you have any thoughts or tips on how you make this work? Thanks!

  2. Hello Anonymous,

    Thanks for your question, it's an interesting on so I'll answer in more detail than a reply; as a separate post on "FOSTERING. CAN I DO IT?"
