|BCYF foster carer Jennie and her husband see themselves as the “lucky ones”.|
“For us our lives are completely enhanced by the joy of having children again at our age,” says Jennie. “We get the love and cuddles and the hugs and snuggle ups, which passes you at this time of life unless you have grandkids which we don’t at the moment. We’re just blessed to have these kids in our lives.”
“It goes back to how the world used to be, grandparents lived in the home and looked after the little ones. We’ve sort of created that out of fostering.”
