Toby is 22 years old and came into foster care when he was 12 years old. He stayed with his foster carers until he left home at the age of 19.
“My foster parents are amazing and I love them to bits. When I first moved in with them, I was not in a good way. I know that I was not the easiest teenager at times, and I sometimes treated them badly, but they never stopped caring for me and never let me down. They knew my background and why I behaved the way I did and they really helped me to get through it. I left home 3 years ago, but I still call them all the time – they are still who I turn to when I need to talk to someone”.
