Any foster care parents out there..... Rss

Hi everyone...
Just looking for a bit of 'personal information' on become a foster mum / dad.
I am a single mum of a 2 year old boy. We live in a great apartment in the inner city and for as long as i can remember i have wanted to be a foster mum. I'm not working at the moment and thought that now would be the perfect time to help out the community as i have plent of time on my hands (apart from caring for my beautiful boy).
Anyway i only want to start of with emergency care / respite care for children under 5 years. i have contact DOCs and they are sending me out some info on how it all works.
But i really wanted some insight into 'real' stories....you know, the good and bad.
Would be great to hear from people.

i had to laugh at this.... i havent been online since about tuesday (except 5 min intervals at a friends house) only cause my floors were getting polished...


but anyway, ask away!

Here in SA you can have up to 5 children in your home including your own

But they do bend the rules as I have 5 of my own & I can have 1 foster child at a time

My DH and I foster children and we have a 2yo dd. At the moment we are taking a short break from fostering, but would be happy to answer any questions smile
