Karen and John Open Their Home to Four Foster Children


Post Stephens couple, Karen and John have been foster carers to a sibling group for just over a year. “We went from having only a pet dog in 2017 to now having a sibling group of four,” Karen says. The couple started fostering through Key Assets after considering other options to start a family. “We couldn’t have children of our own, and we really wanted a family. We also wanted to help children in need. After looking into our options, we ended up deciding to give foster care a go.”

When asked about the biggest challenges, the couple said that managing difficult behaviour was something they’re still learning to work through.
