"It's Just So Rewarding" - Being an LGBTQ+ Foster Mum

This week on Some Families, Lotte and Stu are joined by Annabelle Avis, a foster parent from Swindon. Annabelle and her wife have been fostering since 2013. They currently have 3 children in their care. Annabelle is a big advocate for LGBTQ+ fostering. She discusses the training you receive as a foster carer, changing mindsets and myths, and the importance of the first night in a new home for a child.
