This month is usually a celebration of sons and daughters who play an important role within a fostering family. My name is Conor Porter and I grew up in a family that fostered and believe that my experiences as a foster brother have helped to shape who I am today. Growing up my parents would always tell me about how lucky I was to have food on the table every night, a bed to sleep in and a family who loved me. As a young boy, I never really gave this a second thought, but at times did think to myself, surely this is normal? When my family became a fostering family, and looked after a child for the first time, this is when my perspective on life started to form.
