Sharon accepts the foster care challenge

For Sharon*, being a foster carer has been challenging, but she’s grateful to have made such a difference in the lives of the children she cares for.

Sharon’s journey as a foster carer began when 11-year-old Alana* joined her family. Now aged 18, Alana continues to live with Sharon as a member of her family. She later welcomed Jackson*, now 14 years old.

Sharon says that one of the most rewarding parts of being a foster carer is seeing first-hand the changes that happen for children when they have a nurturing and stable home environment.
