Steven, Ben & James
Steven (5 ½ years), Ben (3 years 10 months) and James (9 months) are three gorgeous, bubbly and loving boys.
Steven and Ben came into care almost a year ago, around a month later, James came into care as well, straight after his birth. They have been placed together since this time with their current foster carers; all three in this time have built warm and affectionate relationships with their foster carers.
Steven is full of character and can light up a room with his smile. Steven finds it difficult to engage in play on his own, due to his developmental delay but loves adult interaction, such as playing football in the garden and being read stories. Steven can struggle to interact with other children and prefers being with adults. Steven is behind his peers academically and socially at school and has extra one-to-one support in class.
Ben is very active, playful and loves nothing more than playing in the garden on the climbing frame. Ben struggles to communicate verbally although is able to indicate when he is thirsty, hungry or needs the toilet; Ben is receiving support from speech therapy. Ben is currently attending afternoon sessions in nursery and loves interacting with the other children.
James is a happy and healthy baby boy who has been in foster care since birth. James was removed at birth to ensure he didn’t experience the same neglectful parenting as that of his older siblings. James is making excellent progress in line with all appropriate milestones for his age. He is laughing, kicking his legs when excited, has recently started trying to roll over when led on the floor and loves watching Steven and Ben play.
Chris & Jack
Chris (4) and Jack (2 ½) are two adorable, bubbly and loveable children.
Chris and Jack came into care 6 months ago and have remained with their current caregivers since this time. During this time Chris and Jack have started to build warm and caring relationships with their foster carers. The boys were removed from their parent’s care due to issues of parental substance misuse and poor mental health, with parents being unable to consistently meet the children’s needs.
Chris is attending nursery and his speech and language has improved significantly since being accommodated with his current foster carers. Chris is a sensitive, loveable, funny little boy. He is a happy and lovable child, he is always smiling and ready for a cuddle and a giggle.
Jack is a loving, happy child who smiles and laughs often and loves the attention of adults. Jack is often observed to be smiling and can sometimes be mischievous. Jack is always ready to have fun and rarely gets upset. Jack is developmentally delayed and so the foster carers are being supported by Jack’s health visitor and other professionals to help him catch up with his peers.
