On 24th May I was fortunate enough to be interviewed on our local Cheshire radio station, Silk 106.9. This was not only to promote my book, but more importantly to highlight “Foster care fortnight” which takes place during the last 2 weeks in May.
These two weeks are designed to showcase fostering and to recruit new foster carers, because we need 10,000 more places in this country, in order to give a home to each of our vulnerable children.
In the interview I talked about how I became involved in fostering, how it had enriched my life, and some of the pitfalls. I speak of the rewarding experience and how the book takes you on a journey through sadness, joy, anger and frustration at a system which is overstretched.
