My name is Annie*. I am 13 years old and have lived in many different homes in my short life.
I am a likeable, engaging and insightful girl, who is curious about the world around me.
In lots of ways, I’m a typical young teenager – I like music, clothes, and having a joke with my carers. I enjoy art activities and especially love spending time outside walking and going to the beach. I am doing really well at school, and enjoy attending every day.
Sometimes I find being in crowds frightening, and I need lots of encouragement to stay calm near large groups of people. I am learning how to do yoga and use relaxation strategies, which help to ease the anxiety I sometimes feel.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the family I am currently living with is unable to continue to care for me and the OzChild team need to find new foster carers to open their hearts and home for me as soon as possible.
I need an experienced foster carer who is competent, flexible, relatable. I have a developmental delay and do best with lots of patience.
I would love to live with a carer who will play with me and help me to learn more new skills.
If you think you fit the bill, please call our foster care team on 9212 3947 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
