Foster Care: Meet Charles and Sean

Charles and Sean were married in 2018 and became foster parents and first-time parents two and half years ago. For the last two years, they have been caring for the same young person and have found creative ways to use play to parent him in a trauma-informed way. During this time, they have seen the young person in their care grow both physically and emotionally, and have developed a strong bond. Charles and Sean are grateful for the team of professionals and friends who support them and the young person in their care. Charles and Sean also like to travel with the young person in their care and create opportunities for him to have new experiences.
