Have you ever wondered about being a Foster Carer, and the impacts that it would have on your family? 

Here we share one family's journey from Foster Caring through to Adoption. And the huge positive impact it has had on all of their lives. Sandra and Michael share their family's story, talking about the rewards, but also the real challenges they have faced throughout the years.

"Family means everything to me, and that's why we went down the foster care road… I felt that I had so much to give".

Sandra and Michael talk about the motivations around first becoming carers and what still drives them 14-years on.

For 14 years, Sandra and Michael have been fostering children through CatholicCare, providing safety and security for children and young people. CatholicCare has been there at every step providing all the support the whole family needed.


Foster Care is such a rewarding experience for the whole family, where you can all support a child or young person to have fun, learn, grow and achieve a positive future.
