Door to Fostering

Update posted by Debbie Carnell On Oct 29, 2015

To those of you who have already contributed to our Door to Fostering please find below a copy of the quote which has been provided by a member of the Progressive Community.There is also a plan of how the bathroom will look when this has been done.He has very kindly said that he will do most of the labour for free with the materials being paid for. This is absolutely fantastic and we cannot thank him enough for everything he is doing for us.

Total materials inc wall tiles etc and an allowance for new flooring would be something around 1500 inc VAT

I would appreciate a contribution of around 1000 towards the labour for the bathroom if that can be raised.

Materials for the garage area - two half hour fire doors and frames, lintels, timber for stud wall, plasterboard, plaster etc

Total inc VATaround 700

Hopefully we can reach our target of 3,000 so we can do the renovations that are needed.

We have now only got three weeks to wait until ?A? comes to us ? he joins our family on the 20 November and from that date forward Jayne and I will encourage him and teach him to be a young boy who can hopefully start to communicate with the world and be accepted by society.

Hi All

Just an update on my fostering journey and further to my previous post on the 3 October 2015.

Firstly can I thank everyone who has donated so far you will never ever know what this means to us on our journey to get "A".

We met "A" for the first time yesterday in the children's home he is currently residing in. He is extremely autistic and lives in his own little world. He does not speak much as his parents or the home where he lives do not have the time to spend speaking to him and playing with him. He does not know how to play. He is an 8 year old boy and the first thing you would expect him to do is play. He wonders around the home he lives in and the garden of the home on his own and does not know how to interact with people. This will change when he arrives with us - we will talk to him, we will spend time with him on the floor playing and we will take him to different places so he can interact with people.

After meeting "A" yesterday we are both very very keen to get starting with this young boy and he joins us on the 6 November.

We are having a further meeting tomorrow with his teachers, his parents and psychiatrist.

Debbie, I salute what you are doing and I am convinced you will get a fantastic return in terms of reciprocated love, and affection over the years. Worth more than any money, ask any foster parent/guardian or grandparent. Good luck

Well done Debbie and good luck with raising all the funds. It's great to see all the help and support from the community, not just financially.
