Excited to foster!
« on: May 13, 2016, 18:17:54 PM »
Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
My name is Amy and I have applied to become a foster carer.
Ive already had a quick chat with Joy and cant wait for home check to be sorted so we can get started.
If anyone has any tips or advice it will be gratefully received.
I hope to provide a loving sofa space very soon xx
