Nicole's Thoughts - Introduction
Hi everyone and a warm welcome to my blog. A place that one day (I hope) you will come for help, reassurance or just for cheering up on a rubbish day! You're human we all have rubbish days I promise.
Anyway it's rude to not introduce myself. I'm Nicole, a 17 year old girl with big aspirations, such as a career in Psychology. However there is something unique in my life which makes it a little bit different and yes you could definitely say interesting. I am a foster sibling. When I was around the age of 13 my biological parents made the decision to kindly foster other disadvantaged children to give them a life they deserved. This has proven to be very difficult at times, I'm not going to lie to you, however it does have many rewarding moments. This moves us swiftly on to what I mainly wish this blog to be about. Fostering.
Fostering is a very daunting prospect that I don't think you can ever describe until you are experiencing it and is different for every family. With this blog, I aim for it to give you my honest opinions, experiences and advice on fostering as sometimes you feel like you don't get the information and guidance you need. Also I believe my advice to be more trustworthy, I'm not biased in anyway. I will be going through the same experiences as you and will be learning and developing as this blog goes along. In the future my blog will cover topics such as respite or personal experiences that make you feel that you are not alone.
Furthermore, if fostering defiantly isn't for you I also will be aiming to discuss important current topics such as the extreme pressure within education, plastic consumption and other interesting debates. But I do not wish for this all to be negatives, I also wish to inform many people about any positive stories I see. This is to remind you that the world isn't all bad, there are some incredible people out there.
Well, I hope this introduction gives you an idea of my vision for this blog. Every Saturday I will try my best to update my blog for you all. Enjoy the rest of your day, remember you will only have it once so make it the best you can!
