We are parents of foster carers, and our role is very much one of foster grandparents.We have two birth grandchildren and currently two foster grandchildren. We look after any combination of children as needed, and try to help out when we can, and the family usually come to lunch on Sundays if we are all available.
Both the foster children are due to move to adopters in the near future.
One is going to join a birth sibling who was also fostered by our family, so we know where he will live, who his parents will be etc. The other is still at the family finding stage.
This is not new for us, but I am already feeling really sad at the thought of losing children who have been part of the family.
Is there anyone else in a similar position?
It is hard for the foster carers, and they need all the support they can get when the transition happens, but it is hard for us too.
