A home, with loving parents and siblings, is the “best stable environment” for a child to grow up in, insists Joy, 35. With this firm belief, she embarked on her fostering journey in 2011, and has never looked back since.

Her own four children, then aged 3 to 10, had to learn to adjust to the new baby in the family. Joy and her husband had to go through the routine of caring for a new born child as well. Life was hectic in the beginning, and it was not easy. Yet, Joy testifies that all these adjustments for this little life is absolutely worth it.

Joy admits that she was not sure at first “how much love to put in”, given the goal of foster care is to reunite the child with his birth parents.

She says “I’ve heard stories about foster mums sobbing when they have to return the child. But I have to think of the big picture here. My role is just to love someone, and hopefully that will change her life forever.”
