No special needs.
That is our work we are both foster carers, we are down for 4 placements at a time we average 3, our average pay element per person is £300 per week our wages per year have been in excess of £42 k, 2 years would be over 84 k. Originally the social services agreed to the one years compensation but then said we may have to not work for 2 years so the other figure was given if this became the case. They have since offered £116 per week being reviewed every 3 months but only for 1 year, the £116 was rejected for obvious reasons. But yes as foster carers as this is our job. Note the little boy has been with us all his life more or less and is used to other children and people coming and going.
was made clear that the original offer was acceptable and our offer was left on the table but the offer from them was not accepted, they gave us 14 days to accept their offer. We made it clear financially their offer was not acceptable but we still wished to adopt.
Average healthy boy, same chance as most.
