Focus on Foster Dads!

August 17, 2010 at 11:40 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Foster dads can play an important role in a child’s life and in some cases may be among the very few positive male role models a child has encountered. Malcolm and his wife have been fostering for four years now.

“My role is more as a supportive carer as I work all day and my wife is the one at home with the kids. Foster care is something we’ve always wanted to do and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it… well maybe not every bit but all in all we enjoy it! I do movie nights and popcorn with the kids or take them out on the weekend. If we have boys I often take them fishing or to the footy, fixing the car– just normal things, Dad things.”
