Meet our children

There are many children across Essex waiting for families. 

*The stories are real, however the children's names and photos have been changed to protect their identity.

Evie and Jack

Evie is a 3-year-old girl with a great imagination, she loves playing with her dolls and pretending to cook in her play kitchen. Evie loves to help her foster carer out around the house by helping to cook dinner and baking cakes. Evie is an avid Peppa Pig lover and likes to snuggle up on the sofa with her tablet watching it. Although Evie is the youngest, she likes to put herself in charge! She is comfortable telling people if she is unhappy with something going on. Evie loves going to nursery, she is described by her teachers as sociable and independent. Evie loves to play with her peers and is making progress every day with her learning. 

Jack is a 5-year-old boy with a kind heart and gentle nature. Jack is an animal lover and enjoys taking the foster carers dog out on long walks by the beach. Jack’s confidence has improved significantly, he now loves going into school and is described by his teachers as being popular in school with his peers. Jack loves to play games although can be a bit of a sore loser if he doesn’t win! Jack is an avid Spiderman fan; he loves to dress up as different characters and shooting pretend spider webs. 

Both Jack and Evie love to be outdoors, they thoroughly enjoyed spending their summer at the beach or in the garden on their trampoline. Jack and Evie love soft play and interacting with her other children their age. 

Both children have improved significantly since coming into care, they thrive on routine and will respect the rules and boundaries laid out by their foster carer. Evie in particular loves to follow routine and will line up her school clothes the night before in preparation for her day to come. 

Evie and Jack have three older siblings who they share a close bond with, and it will be important for the children to have a relationship with them. Evie and Jack require committed and attuned adopters who can provide them with love and care, they will require ongoing support, consistency, and encouragement for them to continue to thrive. 

When the social worker told us we had a son it was jubilation. It was unbelievable."
