First day of introductions - usually stay 2-3 hours at Foster Carer's house and then add an hour longer to each day. She usually provides lunch and drinks. Take some flowers as a thank you and perhaps some cake. Wear same perfume all through introductions and wear the same clothes you wore in the dvd or family book. At the end of the introduction FC might start giving you children's things to bring back home. You will bring home stuff every visit.

Take:-

Camera and spare batteries
Changing Bag containing wipes, nappies, mobile changing pad, cream
Buggy
Teddy or toy to leave, perhaps smelling of perfume you wear
Age appropriate Car seat
Tissues
