The best thing I can share about myself is that I am a mum of children with and without disability. I understand that being able to trust that your children will be safe and happy is the most important consideration when they’re away from your home. I have grown through my family experience of disability during the last 15 years, and I feel humbled and honoured to take this step with you and your young person.
