Children In Care: Ethan's Story

Meet Ethan, aged 11.

Could you foster Ethan?


Ethan came into foster care as his parents were unable to care for him and his siblings. His youngest siblings have been adopted, whilst his other siblings are in long-term foster placements.


Contact was in place between Ethan and his older siblings, however this was stopped as it was proving more harmful for all the children.


Ethan is very sociable and enjoys football and playing out with his friends.


Ethan has suffered neglect and as a result can be quite anxious. He needs support from his foster carers to help him manage his emotions. He can struggle with discipline in his foster placement and has not always respected the rules.


Despite this Ethan is doing well at school, attending on time and achieving well in his SATs.
