Day 9: Little things but with big love: In life it is the little things that count the most, this is the same when it comes to fostering, every little thing you do will mean the world to the young people you are caring for. They may have not had many experiences of loving moments in their life but creating new memories and having you there to help them along their journey will mean everything to them.

Become a foster carer and take part in those little things that mean the world to children in care.

Day 10: Give them space to heal: You will be caring for children and young people who have gone through traumatic experiences which may impact the way they look at life going forward but with your help you can support them to become the best version of themselves regardless of their past experiences. By being their foster carer and allowing them into your safe, loving home, you will enable them to have the space they require to heal themselves and build new memories.

Day 11: You become more selfless: When you take on the roll as a foster carer, you will become selfless because you will put the needs of the young people who are relying on your care first. You will start to see the world from their eyes, and you will want the very best for them. We will provide you with extensive training and all the support you require to help you along on each step of your fostering journey.

Day 12: You gain lots of patience: As someone once said – Be patient, sometimes you must go through the worst to get to the best. When you become a foster carer, you will gain lots of patience, you will learn what works for you and the young people in your care. We will also always be there for you and help you to become the best carer you can be. Just remember with love and patience, anything is possible!

Day 13: If you don’t, who will?: More than ever before, there are children and young people out there who need a safe and loving home. Many will not have had the luxury of growing up in a healthy and caring environment which a lot of us take for granted.

If you don’t help them, who will? Get in touch with the team today to find out more.

Day 14: Teach them life-long skills: Many children and young people who come into foster care have not had the opportunity to learn life-long skills because they have had to grow up in environments where this knowledge and skills are not taught to them. With your care and support you will be able to teach them the vital life-long skills that they can use in the future and help them go onto have a happy independent life. Your care and support will be the last cog in their wheel to help them to achieve their goals.

Day 15: You learn everyday: The best thing about a career in fostering is that every day is never the same! You learn something different every day and this will allow you to grow as a person, as well as becoming the best carer possible. You will learn what works for you and your family, and because you are able to work from home, you can set out a routine which fits around everyone in the household. The beauty of fostering is, there will always be little moments between you and the young people you are caring for. In these little moments you see how far they have come and how much they have progressed. With your love they have been able to go onto achieve the impossible.

Day 16: You are part of a big family: When you become a foster carer, you will instantly gain new friends and become a part of the Capstone family.

Day 17: You will become a tech wizard: There are many positives about fostering, and one of them is that you will become a tech wizard! The times have changed, and more and more young people are enjoying online games, and there will be times where they will want you to join in with them. By showing you the ropes of how the online world works, you will both be able to have fun together and build some new memories. We will also provide you with training to help you access the online support and how to use the foster carer area on the website.

Day 18: You will give more hugs: You will give more hugs than ever before, but you will also receive lots of hugs in return!
