Foster care stories
“When the possibility was mentioned of myself and my younger sister moving in with a same sex couple, the thought didn't phase me. I look on my family as no different to anyone else's. We have a stable loving family home.
I have 2 dads, but everyone has their own roles to play and I can grow and develop like any other child should. Although there are visits from Swiis from time to time, I don't see this as intrusive. It's more like a family friend checking up. I love my family and couldn't see my life any other way.”
Freddie* and his sister have now been with their carers for over 4 years and are settled and doing very well in all areas of their lives. Freddie recently achieved excellent results in his national exams and hopes to eventually go to university.
As a family they enjoy lot of different activities, spending time in their caravan and holidays abroad.
Swiis Foster Care Scotland prides itself on achieving positive outcomes for some of the most vulnerable and complex young people.
