My husband went a month ago and I’m missing him so much. We were talking about fostering a child to give something back to society as our children are all grown up. We had a message from the fostering company on our answer phone but I’m not sure I’m in the right place at the moment. Has anyone done anything like that and if so, has it worked out for them.


Hi JMS1,

Thank you so much for sharing this with the community :blue_heart: I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I just wanted to let you know that you have been heard and you are not alone.

Take good care,

I used to work with children in care and on the edge of care. I’d imagine they wouldn’t consider a placement at this stage if you are newly bereaved. Further down the line, if it’s something you’d still like to do, go for it. Xx

That’s so lovely (once you’re ready).

My friends have just adopted a boy.
