Both our families have fostered kids, so we just grew up around it. Nan did, Mum and Dad did, Paula’s family did. It’s a cultural thing that has been handed down to us, instilled in us. One kid even went from Paula’s house to ours.
There is a need for it, our kids need us. If the mob doesn’t foster we will end up with a generation of people dealing with the same identity issues as the stolen generation.
