Larry Holme shares his and his husband's story about the trials, tribulations, and joys of being foster parents. Giving a heartfelt view about the interactions with the different social care services and charities from the perspective of same-sex couples wanting to care for children.
While not a ‘how to' guide to adopting or fostering children, Larry's story will hopefully help guide the choices of people wanting to adopt or foster through his experiences and lessons learned. The honest and open tale not only gives the joys that can be gained from looking after children in care, but it also shares the challenges, and potential heartache.
This story is based upon Larry and his husband, Robin, as a same-sex couple with the drive and enthusiasm to have a family of their own but not through biological means. With issues covered that include homophobic misconceptions and bias, as well challenges faced in society, Larry shares the experiences well and his enthusiasm for the provision of care for children in need is clear, even with the ups and downs in his own experience.
