Being a foster family can have some nice extras, a lady who received a Rwandan child told the VRT: "I could give many examples. Thanks to her, we could attend a Rwandan wedding party, we travelled to Canada to find her family living over there, it brings you in contact with other types of food, other languages, stories about Rwandan life. All of them small things that add colour and spice to life."
Pleegzorg Vlaanderen, the organisation concerned with foster families, wants to make sure that people who take the step, are being properly guided. "We want to take this momentum of solidarity to create a proper framework and to prepare families thoroughly. They have to be informed properly about what their task will include, in order to make a well-balanced choice."
