Good Morning, Foster Care Superheroes
It doesn’t matter what type of carer you are, we’ve all pressed the snooze button on our alarm clocks in the morning. That familiar buzzzzz cracks through the silence as the sunlight breaks in between the curtains …
Morning! Now, let’s get going.
Right foot, then left, on the ground and out of bed, unless of course you’re greeted by the furriest family member first, the beloved family dog! Speaking of which, you’ll probably need to feed him before you leave. It’s up and away from here onwards. You’re dressed and ready, with a cup of coffee to get the day started … time to wake the kids up. Out of their Batman and Princess Elsa PJs, they’ve finally mustered the energy to get into their school uniform. Ah, breakfast time.
After a cereal spill here and a grumble about burnt toast there, breakfast is done and dusted … out of the house and to school we go. School bag? Check. Lunch? Check. Homework? Uh oh. You’ll be having a chat about that later.
Some of us wish we had clones so we could be here, there and everywhere to get everything done on time, all the time. But fear not! Whether your start to the day is utterly chaotic or perfectly planned, worry not; you’re already doing a superhero’s job as an amazing carer so pat yourself on the back and simply put one foot in front of the other.
As part of Fostering Fortnight, we want to celebrate YOU, the foster carer – we’ve created Sammy, our wonderful foster child under the care of an incredible foster care superhero. Please share and spread the word – help us raise the flag for foster carers over your social channels, helping spread awareness among your friends, families, colleagues, and anyone else who might be interested in a career in fostering.
Join Perpetual Fostering today. We care so that you can.
