We have had 2 children placed with us under a specia guardianship order due to their biological mother neglecting them, drug and alcohol misuse.
For legal reasons I am going to call the children G (girl, 4 years old) B (boy, 8 years old).
G has psychological issues that mainly occur when ever she hears the word 'mum' which causes her to hold herself for upto a week and then causes a lot of mess and also a lot of trauma around toilet time. We have been able to cope with everything apart from this as it is not her fault.
B is a happy little chap that has taken this extremely well and hates his mother for what she has done to the children!
We are asking to raise £10k to purchase our own home so the Holden can have their own space to enjoy rather than in a rented house that they cannot do anything with. While they were in foster care they were in plain magnolia bedrooms which were basic. We have managed to accessorise their rooms a little but this is never going to be their home but we are their home. We are looking to buy our own place so the children can have their bedrooms their own way.
Any contribution towards our deposit would be amazing.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Happy Family to be
