Fostering siblings

10th April, 2018

Our siblings can be the first and longest relationships in our families and in our lives. For siblings in care together, the knowledge that they are able to stay together with brothers and sisters that they love has a positive effect on their outcome in later life.

Liz and Martin King recently started fostering and have been fostering a sibling group of 4 (aged 5-14) for the past 5 months, and while it can be hard work it is extremely rewarding.

Liz and Martin said:

‘We have seen them change from frightened and disoriented children to being happy and settled members of our family. They were already a very strong little unit when they came to us and that sibling bond means that they can support and comfort each other when things are tough. They understand what they have each been through, whereas we can only imagine.

It is such a delight to see them thrive, hear them laugh and hear such glowing school reports particularly in terms of the positive changes in them since being fostered.

They are already very much part of our family and we hope that they will stay with us so that we can watch them into adulthood and realise their dreams as we have done with our own 4 children.’
