Fostering 'W' .... 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.

W is for ....
Wages is the best I can do for W. But I don't really think of it as a wage. The majority of what we receive is an allowance. It is based on the age of the child and covers all the expenses involved with children - from clothes to food to utilities to birthdays. And then a small - and I mean small - salary is added on top for you. We have always said we foster because we want to make a difference, no matter how small. If we ever start looking at fostering from a financial point before a caring role, that's when we stop.
