Muslim foster parents: ‘We'd never had a Christmas tree - it made them so happy’

This article from the Guardian tells the stories of Muslim foster parents in the UK. Some have fostered children of the same background or religion, while others have fostered children from different religious or ethnic backgrounds. The foster parents share their experiences of welcoming children of all backgrounds into their care and the article highlights the need for more foster carers in the UK and the particular shortage of Muslim carers, despite the rising number of child refugees from Muslim-majority countries such as Syria and Afghanistan entering the foster care system.
