We are two gay foster dads living in Australia. We became foster dads over 18 months ago to a beautiful young man who we now raise as our son. This is our story of how our family came to be and all of the ups and downs that come with our challenging and unique situation. We hope this story will raise awareness for all the kids in foster care out there and let people know that there are many kids in care waiting for a new home and someone to love them.

Hi there! Just found your blog and have enjoyed reading about your experience. I’m a brisbane foster carer & blogger also! So wanted to connect with you. I have recently set up a private blog called Brisbane Foster Carers, if you are interested in joining, just let me know. It’s really about sharing information and supporting each other. I’m doing this as part of my role as a FCQ FAST delegate. Other than that I have been blogging for a while over at Love Many Trust Few. Sounds like things are going pretty well for you guys – wonderful! Rose

What an amazing story. I took turns smiling and crying my way through your blog entries. It’s not an easy thing that you’ve taken on but the love you write about is inspirational.

I just found your blog and love the content. I was wondering if you could help us with our quest to become parents as well. We have set up an indiegogo campaign in an effort to raise funds to start our family. I have attached a link to the campaign. If you would please share it with you readers it would mean the world to us. Thank you,

Hi Anne, my publisher went bankrupt after I paid a 50% deposit on my first print run. It’s currently being re-edited while I negotiate with a new publisher

Thanks Liesl! We had a run in when the publisher closed down with half our money. Working on a re-write, followed by a digital then print run soon!
