Hi there we are hoping to go to Australia in 2013. At the moment we are foster parents in UK and have been for the last five years. Until 3 weeks ago I had four foster children and my own birth daughter all aged 8 and under - it was a busy 10 months! Now two have moved on and two remain with us. I am on my own a lot as my hubby is in the Army - he is about to deploy for 6 months to sandy shores. I was wondering if anyone fosters in Australia and if any courses etc over here would be worth committing to whilst he is away in order that when we get to Australia we could foster again. We are with a private fostering agency as most councils ran a mile when they heard he was in the army and we would be moving every 2 years. We have found the pay good and the back up even better - anyone with any expereince?
Thank you - oh and Happy New Year!
