A friend reminded me today of one of my inspirations to study social work. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a foster mum, but I just couldn’t ever seem to fit it into my life. I always had to work, or I had kids or step kids of my own (terrible excuses I know). I remember watching this Australian Story and thinking we need more people like this. One day I realised that if I studied social work I could help make a difference in the way that I have always wanted. It had never occurred to me to make it a career (I kept banging my head against the business wall).
