Story time

Hey guys, so today I thought I would do a story time kind of blog. This is one of the most scary experiences in my life nevermind just fostering experiences. Hope you enjoy.

This must have been about 3 years ago now. Every Summer and Easter holiday we all go to our house in Spain. My parents worked so hard to have enough money for that house and I'm so grateful I get the opportunity to go on holiday a lot. Anyway so it was the end of the Easter holiday, we all had a great time and we were coming back home to England.

We don't fly to and from Spain, don't know why but we just have always driven. So we were on our way back and Adam began to feel ill. We got to the Barcelona service station we always stop at , as it has a burger king, and Adam was being sick all over. Therefore we just thought it was sickness.

When we were getting him cleaned up in the bathroom, I don't know how to describe this but he became like he wasn't in the room. I was talking and he didn't respond, he was slowly stumbling to the toilet and his eyes were just staring. So my mum and I decided to carry him to the car. I can still clearly remember this moment as I was so terrified of how he was behaving.

When we got Adam we had been told that he has seziures but he hadn't had one in a while. Until now. When he got back to the car, I believe he started to go into a seziure. I'm not going into much details about this is it was really upsetting so I'd rather not say. It was all new to us so we didn't know. A nice guy in the service station rang an ambulance for us as we were all panicking. We were in Spain somewhere with a foster child we just got having a seziure.

The ambulance came and after we got over some language barriers Adam and my mum went of in the ambulance and me, Johnny and my dad had to try and find the hospital. This was so hard as we were all stressed and we had no idea where it was. After a while we finally found it.

Adam had a prolonged seziure that lasted 2 hours. He eventually came out of it and he was fine. However him and my mum had to stay at the hospital as us three carried on home. Leaving them behind was so upsetting as we were still worried. That is still one of the hardest things I have ever done.

We got home safely but getting Adam safely home was another story. They had to fly out a doctor from England to Spain to accompany adam and my mum on the flight from Spain to England. Complicated I know! Being so vulnerable in an unknown place made us all worried and stressed. However we all were there for each other and got through it. No matter how hard something is, help is always around.

That's it for today, I hope you enjoyed my crazy story. It helps to show, bad things can happen and you can get through them and keep going! Feel free to tell me a story of yours in the comments. Enjoy the rest of your day, remember you'll only have it once so make it the best you can!

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 i…
My Foster family story
Hi everyone, firstly thank you to anyone who left a positive comment about the start of the blog, I appreciate them all! Having high hopes for this blog, the feedback on it being a good idea means the world to me.  Anyway, moving on to what I would like to inform you about today- my foster family story. I believe sharing this is way for you to gain trust of me and understand why I can help current or future parents. I myself am saying my views from my experiences and I would like to point out that no foster family will have the completely the same story. This is just to let people know my experiences.  Roughly when I was 13, I met my first foster brother who’s name for this blog Ill call Johnny- for privacy reasons. Before this though was numerous checks and visits from the social worker. I can’t really remember all of that but if you are interested let me know and I’ll ask my parents about it. The first meeting we had was just for an hour at his previous foster c…
Basics about fostering 
Hey everyone, for this blog today, I’ve decided to tell you about some basic information about fostering. Hope you enjoy. If you would like to hear about my foster family story, make sure you check out my previous post! Types of Fostering
Emergency – the child or children need somewhere safe to stay immediately. Just for a few nights until a plan is put in place for the child or children.
Short term- the carers look after the child or children for a few weeks or even a few months. This is again to give chance for a longer-term plan to be put in place for the child or children.
Long – term (could be permanent) – this is when there is no family of the child or children that could be able to take care of them. The child or children could stay with you until they are adult. This is the type of fostering my parents do.
I am 100% not an expert, I am just saying this from my own knowledge or research. These are just the types I am aware of. Also, there is such a thing…
