Megs is a working professional who hadn't raised her own children before.
In the beginning she had her doubts. She wondered whether or not she'd be a good mum and how fostering was going to fit in with her busy lifestyle and commitments.
In reality, it was only a very short time until Megs fully realized how much this little person needed her and how ready and willing she was to put them first and give them the unconditional love that they needed when they needed it.
"The most important thing for any child is that they have a home, and that they have a place where they know they belong, a place where they know they are loved."
Megs' child-focused attitude, her flexibility and her communication and teamwork within 'the village' have largely contributed to her success and personal growth in her journey as a foster mum.
Watch this video below as Megs openly shares her story, some of the challenges, some of the joys, and how she feels supported by Lutheran Community Care in her mission to "give her every opportunity to be who she's meant to be."
