Foster Carer celebrates 40 years of Fostering

Published: Friday, 17 January 2020

A long-serving Foster Carer has been thanked for her huge contribution to the care of children over four decades.

Grace Brian was approved as a Foster Carer for Highland Council in October 1979, more than 40 years ago. She has fostered more than 250 children and prepared and supported them to either return home, move to live with family members or on to an adoptive family.                     

The Highland Council is indebted to Grace for her commitment, loyalty and love for what she does every day. The difference she has made for so many children cannot be underestimated, and all the children will carry a small part of her with them throughout their lives.

The Highland Council and the Fostering and Adoption Service has acknowledged this remarkable achievement with an afternoon tea and a presentation of gifts for Grace. We thank her so much for the care she has provided over the past 40 years to so many children and hope that she continues to foster for many more years to come.
