My husband, Gerry, and I have been foster carers since 2006 with Essex County Council. Both professionally and personally, it is the one thing I am most proud of and have found the most rewarding. It was lovely to be asked by
the communications team at the Council to help front some local publicity for the service, especially as this meant reminding people that members of the LGBT community are an important part of the fostering service. You can read the article in our local paper,
the Echo, here.
