Carer stories

Hear directly from our foster carers

Just as every carer is different, so too is every child or young person who requires care. For this reason, everyone’s stories will differ. However, one thing these carers all have in common is their selfless commitment to ensuring a safe and secure home for children and young people in need.

Bronwyn, Stewart and Kodi's foster care story

After having their daughter Emily, Bronwyn and Stewart wanted to have more children, however unfortunately, they were unable to do so.

After considering several options, including international adoption, Bronwyn found herself drawn to foster care and the idea of helping a child in need of care, love, and a home.

Here is their open adoption story.


Sabine and Peter's foster care story

After seeing children being mistreated and spoken to badly while she was out and about, Sabine decided to become a foster carer.

Sabine and Peter provide emergency, respite, and short-term care. When you foster with CatholicCare, we work with you to determine what type of care suits you and your lifestyle.


Ronlyn and Alan's foster care story
