A message to our carers from CEO Marina this festive season!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas and to thank each and every one of you for your continued hard work, commitment and enormous generosity of heart in all you do for our amazing children. I have no doubts whatsoever that the Trust would not be the successful charity it is today without each of you.
What you do on a daily basis is testament to our ethos and value base. Because of you our children often have opportunity for the very first time in their lives to enjoy a loving, safe, stable home and a family for life. The difference this makes to them going forwards is immeasurable. And although not always immediately evident I’m confident that your commitment and investment in their future also changes the lives of future generations! There are not many roles in life that do that, but being a Foster Carer can be one of them.
One of my all-time favorite quotes and mantras for life should, in my opinion have been dedicated to fostering as it says:
‘What is success? To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to appreciate the beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or esteemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; This is to have succeeded!’
I hope you all have a very fun filled and joyous Christmas and a peaceful, healthy and prosperous 2024! Once again, my enormous thanks for being the very successful individuals you are and for making all the ‘difference’,
Warmest wishes, Marina.
