After working in the finance industry for 10years I knew the...

 After working in the finance industry for 10years I knew the time had come to make a change in my life.  I was becoming unhappy in what had become a stressful and demanding job.  I felt that in the latter part of my working life I should be happy and content, not  feeling frustrated and agitated.

I had worked in Family Day Care in the office for 8 years and knew that I loved being around children.  I made a decision, quit my job, and signed up with OTEN to complete Certificate III in Children’s Services. 

When I was doing the module about Children At Risk I was completely unprepared for the emotion that overtook me and I struggled to get through it.  When I sent in my assignment I disclosed my feelings to the teacher and told her I had often thought about foster caring.  The feedback that I received from this teacher was positive and encouraging and it has now led me down another path in my life. 

In addition to working casually in the childcare industry, I have now been approved to do respite foster caring and I do my final training in March.
