Fostering 'U' ..... A - Z Blog Challenge




As Jeff and I have been foster carers for 3 years this month it seemed the right time to have Fostering as a topic for the A-Z. We're still new enough that we're not jaded yet, but have had a pretty bumpy ride, so fairly realistic in what fostering is really about.

U IS FOR:

Unannounced Visits - Each year your agency will do an unannounced visit. If you're like us it can take several visits before they find us home - that's not a problem.....refusing to answer the door would be a problem though. It's a quick check of the foster children's rooms, they don't look in any rooms that the foster children do not access, i.e. other bedrooms. They're not looking to see if the room is spotless or that the ironing is up to date, it's more of a 'does he still have a room and what state is it in'. Of course, they do also make allowances for the fact that teenage bedrooms aren't renowned for being the cleanest and tidiest :)
