3-10 year olds in foster care?
DH and I have three ADs, been with us eight years, all now in secondary school. Maybe we are just feeling a bit nostalgic for when they were younger, but we are starting to talk about the possibility (in another few years) of fostering. My question is about the ages of children looking for foster carers. We have zero experience of babies, nor any particular desire to learn at this point in life, and I'm not sure we are really up for troubled teens. I guess what we'd ideally want to do is foster children of a similar age to our girls when they came to us - so about 3-6 - or perhaps slightly older primary age children. But do that sort of age children often go into FC, or is it nearly all babies and teens? Appreciate the picture may have changed again by the time we're in a position to consider this more seriously, but would be interested in views/ experiences.
