I have just recently had to move a child on for Kinship Care after caring for this child for nearly 2 years. It is probably the most painful thing that I have had to do.Even though Social Workers warn you not to become too attached, it is alot easy to say than do- especially when you feel the child is not going to a better place.A young baby or any child I believe can sense when your feelings for them are not genuine or deep and I believe every child needs to feel that sense of love that instills security in them.So future Foster Carers need to know that you can get very close to a child and need to be able to deal with the pain of a child having to move on, even when you do not believe that this is in their best interests.Foster Carers views in cases like this are too easily ignored by professionals and the courts which can leave you feeling powerless and undervalued. However, this should not stop you trying to voice your opinion and fight for what in your opinion is right for the child, this may not make you popular with the powers that be, but we are failing these children if we do not make the attempt.
