Obviously, you will want to know as much as possible about who’s coming to stay before they turn up. Your parent(s) should tell you as much as they can. Sometimes it is difficult, as a child or children may have to come and stay at very short notice, and there isn’t time for your family to find out everything they need to. Remember, sometimes things don’t work out as planned, so some children may stay for longer or shorter times than you were told they might.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You are part of the fostering family, after all.
