I thought it would be nice to have somewhere we can introduce ourselves so I'll start us off. My name is Heidi, I am 50 & live in Sydney Australia. I have been married for 27 years & a foster mum for 23 years & have had lots of children come through our home over the years. I have a 16 year old that has been with us since 6months old. The fostercare system over here is different & adoption from fostercare is virtually unheard of, the powers that be are just starting to look at adoption as a better option for kids. I was born with heart problems & am just about to be listed for heart/lung transplant.
