This is my first round-up of 2013. Last month the very lovely Vicki at The Boy’s Behaviour guest-edited the round-up for me, which was wonderful to get a new pair of eyes on the Adoption and Fostering blogosphere. It was also great for me as I seem to be increasingly up to my eyes in [...]

Fostering is how many children in the UK, those who can no longer live with their birth parents, for a variety of reasons, are cared for and parented in the UK. There are a large number of [...]
