Inspirational people inspire vulnerable children to a better future.

There has never been a greater need for inspirational people to come forward as foster carers than now. Coronavirus is causing us all to reassess our lives, and now more than ever, our children look to us for inspiration because we are the future to them. It is no longer about rainbows, children are aware of a change, and they have questions that need answers.

Ultimately, children trust us to answer them and look after them, so they don’t need to be scared. However, this is not how it is for vulnerable children in care. They now, more than ever, need inspirational foster carers to guide them, make them feel safe, and be their inspiration as they lead children in care to a better future.

Inspirational people leading the way.

Inspirational people who understand children are vital. It is not enough to have a spare bedroom for a vulnerable child; they need more than this. They need people who will understand them and lead by example and show them the right way in life. More than ever, they need your patience to inspire them, to guide their way and stay the course and never, ever quit on them. No matter what they throw at you because they will test you. Sadly, we let children down too many times, and it will take time for them to learn to trust again.

Inspirational people see the world through the eys of a child.

Inspirational people who work with children or successfully raise their own families view the world through children’s eyes. These people understand vulnerable children and get the ‘silent pain’ that some children feel.

They instinctively know they have felt something similar and know that children ‘act out’ behaviour. However, some children learn to get attention, frustration and anger, or ‘acting out, ‘ which is the only way some learn. Equally, some people instinctively know because of their own lives when sadly, looking through a child’s eyes was their own safe space.

Inspirational foster carers inspire children to be children…

Inspirational foster carers know that children who have complex needs have many layers; they are tough. To these children, crying is a weakness they have learned to control, and this control is the way they handle life; sadly, the truth is that many vulnerable children in care will not know how to cry. They often are desensitised to their feelings; they understand that no one appears to care, so what’s the point? So, this is why we never give up on children, and foster carers allow children to be just that; children.

Children are Superheroes too!

Inspirational peole help children to be whoever they want to be…

Children explore their feelings through play; a child’s imagination is a beautiful tool to inspire and protect. When a child plays, the world is a better place, and they are with the Superheroes they aspire to.

Inspirational foster carers understand the power of play, and their heroes can allow children to be children, which, as a result, gently removes the negative triggers. Ultimately, with consistent love and support and never giving up, children realise that Superheroes are not just on TV. These Superheroes are now with them every day, leading the way with a family to let them be who they want to be. They inspire foster carers who understand and will never give up on them!

Inspirational foster carers are the real Superheroes…

For many people, the decision to foster is a difficult one to make for many reasons. Maybe we think our lives are not as successful enough? Perhaps we may have faced things in our lives that we want to keep parked away, and subsequently, as a foster carer, we could re-open again?

But how do children in care measure your success? For these children, foster carers are not an empty bed in a house that accommodates them. Real foster carers are the Superheroes; they are the real change-makers who do not give up on them and have learned to get them.

They are the people they have learned to trust and inspire them to get on with being children. Subsequently, they are people that have chosen to be foster carers and carefully selected the right agency for them; and dedicated themselves to never giving up on a child. To do this, they know they have to work together as a team, to be the inspirational voice that children need and advocate for them, and even more importantly, to learn and evolve to maintain their Superheroe status continually.
