For foster carers, moving a child onto permanence, whether that is to birth family, to another foster family or to their adoptive family, can be a very positive but challenging time, fraught with emotion. There are so many practical things to consider as well as coping with your own feelings and those of the people around you.
A local foster carer has written about their own experience of moving their baby to their new adoptive family in this short booklet which can be downloaded here: Saying goodbye.
