BIRTH CHILD STORIES
When people make the transition to become Foster Carers it doesn’t just have an impact on them, but it also impacts on the entire family including their own birth children. As a foster carer you are allocated a Supervising Social Worker to support you, as a looked after foster child you are allocated a Social Worker to support you too but for a birth child they can often feel invisible to social work agencies if the right support is not there for them! It is important for birth children to feel as if they have a voice when it comes to the fostering process. They should also be involved in decision making. Birth children of foster carers play a major role in the life of a looked after young person. Reading birth child stories before becoming a foster carer can be very helpful.
