Blog of the Week

Blog of the WeekHere at Netmums we love showcasing great blogs.

With that in mind we decided to set up our Netmums ‘Blog of the Week’ selection.

Each week the team behind the Netmums Parent Bloggers Network choose their favourite post and  give it a big shout out both here on our own blog and on the Network itself.

Sometimes it’s the funny, sometimes it’s the poignant, sometimes it’s the honest, but always it’s a great post that we all agree deserves the illustrious title of ‘Netmums Blog of the Week’!

  1. I am a foster carer who specialises in children under two years of age. I have moved on eleven of my 22 babies to adopitve parents (or Guardians the children didn’t know) and all of these have been successful. Some of the children have been a similar age to Bonzo. In more recent years the new parents make up a book of photos of them, their homes, bedrooms and pets etc for the child to look at before they meet the child and these have been very beneficial to the child in recognising their new Mummy and Daddy. We look over and over the books with the children and talk about Mummy and Daddy a lot for the couple of weeks before they meet. To see the look of amazment of the books coming alive when they meet is incredible. It really does make a difference to the planned move which are similar to what this lady experienced, and often done in 5 days. Any longer and the children get upset and confused at attaching to someone new and detaching from the carers. But I also think a big difference between Bonzo and my children is that I have cared for my babies from 6 months old at the latest and they have not suffered from having lots of homes. Quite often my babies come to me straight from hospital at 3 days old. Indeed I have not known of such a young child having so many moves in the town in which I live.

    I agree with you Lisa, Foster Carers do a brilliant job and its a very rewarding but challenging career. There are lots of websites on the internet that have impartial information on how to foster…I’d check those out first or you could contact your local authority for advice.
