Today's blog comes from El, who saw our Sons & Daughters blogs on Twitter and was inspired to share her own experiences about growing up with foster carers for parents.

Hello, my name is Bailey. My family have been fostering for 2 ½ years now. We foster children from 0-18 years with a preference of 0-6 years. Overall we have had 5 placements, all boys, one of which was a placement of siblings.
My name is Robbie and I live with my mum and dad, my brother Jamie and my two new sisters Shannon and Paige, and the baby.
My name is Paige and my family foster children who need looking after.
Fostering is really fun because you can play with diffrent children!
To me fostering means looking after children that can't live with their parents, grandparents etc at that specific time and giving them the love and reassurance they need to live a happy life ( which every child deserves) until they either go back and live with their family or go to another carer
I think fostering is about giving kids that did not have quite a good time at home maybe because of a crisis or mum/dad was too young.
Fostering is when we look after kids that their mums and dads are ill and can't look after them.
Hey everyone, I'm going to tell you about being a foster sister. I have been a foster sister since I was 5 (2006).
Much is made of the amazing qualities foster carers have; and rightly so. To open your home and your heart to a child in need takes patience, perseverance and a great deal of empathy, to name but a few qualities.
