Capstone (North) celebrate Sons and Daughters Month!

31st December, 2019

This month at Capstone Foster Care we have been celebrating sons and daughters month to celebrate the significant contribution of children of foster carers in the fostering role. Our carers are thankful for the support they receive from sons and daughters who have been there from day one when the fostering journey began. Just like our foster carers, are there for our foster children so are their own birth children. They are unperturbed by the unsettling and unpredictable nature of foster care. Our foster carers birth children find room in their home and in their hearts, for the children when they arrive and also feel a deep sense of loss, like our foster carers do, when the children move on. It is not always easy for them to share their space, possessions and attention but when asked how they feel about fostering they praise the role their parents play and positively speak about how being part of a fostering family impacts on them and has helped them to understand others better. Foster children seek reassurance and praise from birth children in the home, birth children are the growing band of people they can trust and count on. Foster children observe how birth children act within the home, responsibilities they hold, how they hold down a responsible job and education. Our foster children ask curious questions about birth children which help them gain essential life skills. Fostering impacts on the whole family and everyone in the household needs to be committed. Sons and daughters are involved in the decision to foster and part of the assessment process. There is always training available for sons and daughters of foster carers as well as their own support groups We want to take the opportunity to thank all our sons and daughters of foster families for helping and contributing towards being part of the Capstone Family. You are fantastic at what you do!!
