Sue said, “The card took me by surprise because I hadn’t realised how much of an impact I’d had on this young person’s life. This reinforced that what I am doing for my foster children is right and that it can make such a difference to them.”
I fostered a little 5 year old girl who had never experienced Christmas before. She knew there was a Father Christmas, but he’d never been to her house before as she was too ‘naughty’. She didn’t really get what it was all about and was a little bemused by it all.
She loved that the elves had come and decorated the house. Her face lit up when she saw everything. We took her to see the houses that had been decorated and she found it ever so magical, her eyes noticing every single detail, every star, every reindeer, every snowman.
