I have been in foster care since I was eight years old. Foster care hasn't been the easiest journey, but it got me away from a difficult domestic situation that I was too young to understand at the time.
The carers that I have now are amazing. I started living with them when I was 15.
I didn't know what they were like or how I would find living with them, so I was nervous at first. But they spent a lot of one to one time with me, which helped me get to know them better, and they'd talk to me about how I was feeling and take me out at weekends.
I've made a booklet with Fixers to benefit other children in foster care and help them deal with their emotions. I hope it helps break the ice between foster carers and children, because it can be hard.
